Swamiji says,‘a temple is an inspiration centre, a place for holistic growth’. A temple, constructed according to the sastra allows one to visualise a replica of the entire creation in it.
Bhagavad Ramanuja institutionalised temples in places such as Melkote, Sri Rangam, Thirupathi to ensure that service to Lord has no compromises, and is done with utmost love. That is why, archakasin temples till date sing, ‘Ramanuja:ryadivya:gnavardhatha:mabhivardhatha:m’
