Not Sri Ranganatha, Not Sri Srinivasa, Not Sri Varadaraja, Not Sri
Tirunarayana, Not any of the Lords of any other Divya Desams.

It was Sri Parthasarathi, the Charioteer of Partha who delivered all
these- promise of deliverance, reiteration of protection and the much
needed consolation.

I would, therefore, vote for Tiru Allik Keni as the most favored Divya
Desam.

    Who else would be happier than me?!  All thiruvallikkENi vAsIs would
be extremely delighted to see this.  thiru allikkENi boasts of one of
the most excellent gOshTi. The elaborate uthsavams, many upanyAsams...
make the dhivya dhEsam even more wonderful.
It has in itself 5 most important dhivya dhEsams. kOil (Sri ranganaathar
), thirumalai (Sri vEN^katakrishNan), perumAL kOil (Sri varadharAjar),
ayOdhdhi (Sri rAmar), ahObhilam (Sri azhagiyasiN^gar).
In a way, this dhivya dhEsam takes credit for giving Sri Ramanuja to us
(His parents prayed here for a son).

sarva dharmAn... mOkshaishyAmi mA sucha: enRu aruLina
Sri pArththasArathi svAmi thiruvadigaLE thanjam.
