There is a classic work by Sri Pillai Lokacharya called Archiraadhi
which describes the path taken by a soul on its way to Vaikuntham.
There was one english translation of this work by one Miss Ramesh. I 
have this typed up and a portion of it is archived in the bhakti list
archives.

I think the answer to the question is all liberated souls go to
Vaikuntham (Paramapadam).
