Two important events will be held at Sri Dasavathara Sannidhi premises of the Ahobila Mutt in Srirangam on June 2 and June 6, both signifying the religious honour to Sri Narayana Yatheendra Mahadesikan, the 45th Azhagiyasingar of the Mutt.

The idol, about three feet in height, is in a seated posture. The ‘brindavan’, donated by devotees is located on the site where the holy remains of the jeer was placed a year ago after he attained ‘siddhi’ on May 19.
To mark the consecration of the brindavan, a special homam will be performed by vedic pandits led by Veeraraghachar Swamy from Tiruvaheendrapuram on June 2.
At the close quarters are a couple of brindavans dedicated to Sri Lakshmi Nrisimha Satakopa Yatindra Mahadesikan, the 41st and Sri Vedanta Desika Yateendra Mahadesikan the 44th jeer, who was instrumental for construction of the ‘rajagopuram’ for the Srirangam temple.
