Dear Members,

Tirupputkuzhi is one of the 108 Divya Desams with a special
significance.
This is the place where Sri Ramanujar studied Vedanta under
Yadavaprakasa.
This kshetram is also known for the great sacrifice by Jatayu, the king
of
birds. When Ravanan kidnapped Sita, it was Jatayu who came to her rescue

on hearing her cries for help. Ravanan defeats Jatayu in a great batle
and
recounts the incident to Lord Rama before departing this world. Sri Rama
inturn
grants moksham to Jatayu and as per his request resides at this kshetram

as Vijayraghava (on return from Lanka).

We will be adding more information about this sthalam in the
days to come.

Azhvaar emperumaanaar jeeyar thiruvadikalE  Saranam.
