Dear Members,

the text Koyil ozhugu is published by Sri Krishnaswamy Iyengar, Sri
Vaishnava Sudarshanam. This book is available from Srinivasa Press, 8,
Puththur Akraharam, Trichy - 17. You can also get a copy from the book
store inside Sri Parthasarathy temple in Triplicane.

This text presents the Srirangam temple sthala puranam, collected from
various sources including some inscriptions and puranas. It is believed
that this text was compiled first either during Sri Ramanujar's time or
shortly thereafter. The text was first published in 1888 and then in
1909. An english translation was published by one Dr. V. N. Hari Rao in
1961 (probably available from Rock House & Sons (p) Ltd. 3, Sungu rama
chetty st, Chennai 600 001).

This text is very similar to the text Tirumalai Ozhugu published by TTD
describing the sthala puranam of Tirumalai temple.
