Jal Narayan at Swarnagiri - Hyderabad

For Srivaishnavaites – Thiruvarangam is Booloka Vaikuntham and a glimpse of Emperuman   Sri Ranganathar in sayana thirukolam is eternal bliss. 

Hyderabad may be bone dry and hot -  in recent times, there is fresh trouble brewing.  According to the original plan, the Government was to  unveil the new State emblem and the official song penned by noted poet Ande Sri on June 2 during the Telangana formation day celebrations at Parade Grounds. The decision to make changes to the state emblem, the Telangana Thalli statue, the abbreviation from TS to TG, and the release of a new state official song are all projected by opposition  as an attempt by the Government to create its mark overriding and erasing the legacy and footprints of BRS and its chief K Chandrashekar Rao from the history of Telangana. 

According to reports, the government was considering removing the Charminar and Kakatiya arch (Kala Thoranam) from the existing emblem while adding the Telangana martyr symbol. However, the decision to remove Charminar and Kakatiya Arch has met with criticism from the BRS, which had threatened to launch statewide protests. Already, the music to the state official song “Jaya Jaya He Telangana' by Keeravani, who has Andhra roots, was objected to. 

Moving away from controversy, recently in April – the city is blessed with another most beautiful Srinivasa Perumal temple in the outskirts – on the way to  Bhongir (Bhuvanagiri)

Yadadri Tirumala Devasthanam, famously  Swarnagiri Sree Venkateswara Swamy Devasthanam, is situated atop Manepally Hills in Bhuvanagiri, emerging  as a captivating new destination just 47.3 kilometres from Hyderabad and a mere 19.7 kilometres from Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple in Yadadri.  This temple has been built by Manepally Jewellers.  

Miles away,  Budhanilkantha is a municipality in Kathmandu District in the Bagmati Province of Nepal situated at the foot of Shivapuri hill, just 10 kms away from Kathmandu – and it has this beautiful temple dedicated to Sriman Narayana – Jal sayana Narayana – Jal Narayana.  At Swarnagiri too, there is Jal Narayana – here is a picture of Sayana vasa Perumal – more about the beautiful temple later
