I am interested in knowing the gotras of the following disciples of
the Sri Ramanuja.

1. Tiruk kurugai Piran Pillan
2. Arulalap Perumal Emperumanar 
3. Parasara Bhatta
4. komaandoor ilayavalli 

adiyen :  In  the  enthusiasm of   writing  about Sri KomAndUr Elayavalli
 ( or Elayavilli ?) of  Kowsika gothram , adiyen  forgot to  answer  about 
the  gotrAs  of  other  two  AchAryAs . 

Tiruk  Kurugai  PirAn PillAn  who  wrote the  famous  6000 padi  belongs to 
 "Sadamarshana gotram" 

adiyen vaguely  remembers  ParAsara Bhattar  to be from  "Srivatsa Gotram".
Adiyen may be wrong also . 

Recently , Sri U.Ve. ChettaLUr SrivatsAnkAchAryA  swAmi  has  published  an 
excellent  monograph (68 pages)  on  "Kowsika Gothra mAhAtmyam"
