Dear BhakthAs of Sriman NaarAyaNA : 

I would like to invite your attention to the most beautiful
images of the ArchA mUrthys of the ancient divya desam
revered as ThiruevvuL in a new home page created by
our Sri Parthasarathy Dileepan . The history of this divya desam 
has been lost in the sands of time. Both Thirumangai 
and Thirumazhisai AzhwArs have sung the glories of 
the Lord VeerarAghavan resting on His bed of AdhisEshA 
here . 

At this home page , You will have the darsana soubhAgyam of 
the uthsavars .Their sarvAnga Soundharyam is delectable to enjoy.
The beauty of the divya dampathis adorned with nava rathna
haarams as well as Mallikai , IruvAtchi and Jaathi Mullai 
flower garlands is aparyApthAmrutham ( insatiable nectar 
to drink with one's eyes ). The indescribable beauty
of our ThAyAr ( Sri Kanakavalli )adorning priceless 
coral and gem necklaces and offering us protection with
her uplifted Abhaya hastham is an image that will 
stay forever in our minds . Thank you Sriman Dileepan 
for your most welcome Kaimkaryam .

The organizers in India were confident that they
could raise the required funds in India without 
" troubling " us . It is however our Bhaagyam 
to be given an opportunity to particpate in
this extraordinary kaimkaryam and receive the blessings
of the Divya Dampathis .
