Sadagopacharlu, Seshachari’s uncle, donated 113 grounds of land in Venkatesa Agraharam, Alamelumangapuram, Abhiramapuram, and parts of R.A. Puram to the Vedanta Desika Devasthanam in Mylapore. A slab recording the contributions of Sadagopacharlu, Seshachari and Desikachari to the temple can be seen in Vedanta Desika Hall, Venkatesa Agraharam. Utsavams are still being held in the temple, under the auspices of Echamma trust, named after Sadagopacharlu’s wife.
