Dear Sriman Narayanan:

Sri YathOkthakAri or Sonna vaNNam Seytha PerumAL is
more ancient than Kaaanchi VaradarAjan since He
appeared earlier to seerve as a dam across 
the Vegavathi River ( Devi Sarasvathi in the form of river)
to protect Brahma devan's Yaagam on top of hasthigiri
at Kanchi .It is an authentic Dhivya desam sung by
AzhwArs. Thirumazhisai AzhwAr has been intimately associated
with this dhivya desam . PerumAl and ThAyAr 
are beautiful. On eof the Mudhal AzhwArs was born
in a lotus at the temple tank . 

The Bhattars at this temple have a meagre income and
Aaradhanam is being done with difficulty. Your support 
will be timely and appreciated .

Sriman T.A.Varahdan (copied on this note) is a native
of Kaanchipuram and has a project to support kaimkaryams
at the Dhivya desams . I request him to write to you
about the channeling of your samarpaNam to Kaimkaryam
at this temple .Thanks Sri Varadan .

If Srirangam  RanganathAn's moolavar's Head 
is on our left , YathOkthakAri's head is on
our right side .Devi sarasvathi is standing at
His feet on the left side. The beauty of this PerumAL 
is outstanding. Please visit the KshEthram .

Best wishes,

           - SrImate rAmAnujAya namaH -
