Following the divine command of Swamy Ramanuja to maintain the holy shrines and ensure that flowers, chandan and prasadam are offered to the deity, we do daily maintenance as well as renovation of divya kshetrams.
To develop the above Divya desams, we appoint a bhagavata in the divya kshetram for complete maintenance of the garden. Nandavanam (garden) is maintained right from tilling and arranging source of water to wreathing garlands and offering to the deity. We also supply the required provisions and financially assist the paricharaka (cook). We have now taken up this service in Tirukkannangudi, Koviladi, Sirupuliyur, Kattumannarkoil, Thirunagari, and Tirunagari (Tiruvali).
Bhagavan gave us this body to serve him. For our members to realise this and reciprocate, we have established small facilities at 6 remote divyadesams. We invite you to come with family, stay here and do all possible services to the Lord. You will feel the spiritual energy. We invite you come with family, stay in our facility and serve the Lord there atleast for two days. To book your days and Divyadesam please click the below button:

As already scheduled, we landed at Sirupuliyur divya desam on 16th July at 7.30pm. We have been welcomed by the care takers of the Kinchitkaram Trust.
We met Bhattar & gave him vastrams for Perumal & Thayar. The next two & half days we had wonderful darshan of Perumal & Thayar and we were blessed to do the kainkaryams which was instructed by the Bhattar like cleaning of praharams, folding of vastrams, tieing flowers.
The caretakers were courteous in their reception & all our requirements were very well taken care of by them. We also received Perumal prasadam during our stay in Sirupuliyur. The trust building & nandavanams were very well maintained.
We offer our sincere gratitude, respect & love to Bagavat Ramanujar & Kinchitkaram Trust for providing us this wonderful opportunity to serve Kripasamudra Perumal & Dhayanayaki Thayar. We look forward to do more such kainkaryams in the near future.
Adiyen with my dharmapathni had been to Kattumannarkoil divya shetram to fulfill the Sri Ramanuja Divyangya kainkaryam from 1st to 4th Aug 19 organised by Velukkudi Swami, KKT.
It will be very tough for any srivaishnavite to detail the divine experience that he/she gets in rendering such services in any Emperuman temple and I am no exception.
We can’t feel the taste of sugar until we put it in our tongue; like that one has to go for such kainkaryam and feel for him/herself.
The reason for my starting the kainkaryam from Kattumannarkoil: But for Sriman Nathamunigal, today we will not be knowing the values (Perumalin arumai, perumai, dhayai, HIS down to earth attitude towards HIS children (us), forgiving nature and so on) of SRIMAN NARAYANAN; because of Sriman Nathamunigal only, we got Nalayira Divya Prabhandam which throws light on Emperuman’s above said qualities, the importance and values of 108 divya desams and after his time only Alwar/Acharyas granthangal/vyakyanangal came as a treasure with Sriman Nathamunigal / Sri Alavandar’s poorna anugraham. But for these, we all would be like trees, cattle and other creatures. I intend to undertake this kainkaryam in other divya desams as well in the coming days.
Our service at Kattumannarkoil: We first started plucking flowers as prescribed by the bagavathas there in the Nandavanam. It is a feast to our eyes to see the greenery garden. Then we cleaned all the sannathis by removing the cobwebs. Daily we collected ThayAr, Perumal, Alwar / Acharyas vastram bundles, cleaned and folded it in a neat way to be stored safely. We cleaned Perumal’s some utensils.
Our stay/Aharam: KKT is providing a brand new 2 BHK house very close to the temple where the other occupant is the Paricharagar Sri Srinivasan. 3 times temple prasadams (different varieties) is substantial for our daily intake.
People: All bagavathas/srivaishnavites are very friendly and move as a family member (athma banthu).
1. Emperuman Kadaksham.
2. Satisfaction that we could fulfill one of Sri Ramanujacharya’s divyangya.
3. Satisfaction that we stayed in a divya shetram for 3 nights.
4. Could stay away from the monotonous life.
5. Could get the association of true dedicated bagavathas.
6. Without spending a pie for shelter / food, blessed to get Emperuman Veera Narayanar sevai daily for hours.
7. Feel that today only I am born.
All these could be possible because of KKT, but for whom we can not imagine such blissful experience.
We sincerely pray at the the feet of all 108 divya desathu Emperuman that Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy be blessed with 240 samvatsarams (Twice that of Sri Ramanuja) with the physical strength of 20 year youth.
Adiyen Chidambram from Tirunelveli. Thanks for the accomadation provided for us on 05-07-19 at Alwarthirunakari.
adiyen, S Chidambaram.
Very devoted, dedicated Bhagavathar Sri Mukunda Azwar Swamy at KKT-Thirukkannangudi.
மிகவும் அன்பான கைங்கர்யதாரர் திரு முகுந்த ஆழ்வார், திருக்கண்ணங்குடி கிஞ்ச்சித்காரம் ட்ரஸ்ட். அவருடைய கவனிப்பில் மனம் நெகிழ்ந்த ஸேவார்த்தி
Greetings….Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha.
Namaskaram, adiyen went for koyiladi kaingaryam. It was a very good first experience for me serving at nandavanam and at temple. Thanks for accommodating me at the trust building. Appreciate the efforts by kinchitkaram trust.
I have participated 3 days Kainlkaryam to Kattumannar Kovil, Alavandar Thiru Natchitram.
I was there from 5 to 7th Aug. Stayed at “Sri Nada Yamuna Bhawan”. Jayaraman actively received me at early morning 4:30 at Temple. He picked up from temple and allocated a room on the 1st floor. Already one devotee stayed there. He also welcomed me without any issues.
By 7:00 am, we went to temple Nandavanam and picked various flowers and Thulai. Two Ladies already worked for Malai Kainkariam. They have completed 7 malai and we handed over these to Archakar.
The Chief of the temple gave respect to Trust volunteers. He also provided morning coffee, lunch in his house. We had prasadam in the temple every morning and at night.
We plugged the small herbs around the temple praharam. Due to the Festival, all Archagar are very busy and unable to allot more works.
Next day, we again plugged the flowers and asked archakar to clean the lights and vessels.
We cleaned 6 feet light, Ambal and Moolavar lights, Sodasa vessels, Brase Anda, Kunda. Also washed the floor near Narashima Perumal next to Moolavar.
Every day I went along with Urchavar around the 4 streets.To pull the cart.
Every day new volunteers come. All are actively participating. They help each other, we share the works based on age.
It is adivsible, not to combine the Kainkariyam along with Festival at Temple.Because all are very busy for Thirunatchitram works. They don’t have time to allot cleaning work.
It was a very nice devotional experience. We forgot our routine works. We sat near the moolavar statue almost 6 to 7 hours daily and saw lord Perumal.
Thank you to Swami and others.
Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha.
As you may be aware. we ( my wife and self) had been to Kaattumanaar koil during August 24-26 to do kainkaryam as suggested by U.Ve. Velukkudi Krishnan Swamigal. It gives me great pleasure to share our experience there.
The guest house built by Kinchitkaram Trust and the nandavanam were excellent. We both enjoyed whatever small kainkaryam service like plucking flowers, tulasi. making garlands, drawing kolams at various sannidhis, cleaning of Perumal utensils, contribution to prasadam, etc.
Everyone in the koil was very cooperative and helpful. Our humble pranams and dhanyavaadams to Sri U.Ve. Velukkudi Swamigal for providing such convenient facilities for devotees.
This mail is not complete without mentioning the goodness of Sri Jayaraman, the caretaker of guest house.He is a true gentleman, hardworking and totally dedicated person. The soft-spoken gentleman was always ready to guide and help us. We are really grateful to Perumal and Thaayaar for giving us this opportunity to serve the koil in a limited way. We will always remember this divine experience as well as
those earlier first at Appakudaththaan koil in 2017 and Siritirupuliyur in 2019 respy.
We hope and pray many more Bhagavatas will utilize this wonderful facility to serve this historic and ancient koil in the coming months.
We look forward to another opportunity to serve at Tiruvali-Tirunagari in the near future.
Recently I (Girija) and my friend Rema went for bhagavat kainkariya siva to Thirukanankudi as per advice of Acharyar Sri. Velukkudi Swamigal. I had gone previously also to render kainkariyam seva as per his recommendation.
I have no words to explain my gratitude. I feel blessed and honoured to be engaged and get an opportunity for performing seva. Inspite of my advanced age of 73 years, I am empowered to assist and render devotional service by Bhagavan & Acharya anugraham. Puspa kainkaryam, sudhi seva, Bhagavat paatira vessel washing are some seva we were assigned. The hospitality, care and guidance received are overwhelming. Our thanks to coordinators and management for directions.
I am Jayakrishna Nadakuditi from Bangalore, Kinchitkaram Trust Member : CHN99901918. Myself and my uncle Sri.Nageswara Rao recently completed our trip to Thirukannankudi under the “Serve Divaydesams” initiative of the esteemed Kinchitkaram Trust. Our dates of kainkaryam were on April 1st and 2nd 2023.
I am very grateful to Sri.Velukkudi Krishnan Swami and Kinchitkaram Trust for having given us the opportunity to perform kainkaryam at the Loganatha Perumal Temple. I am also very grateful to Sri.Shivakumar and Sri.Satyanarayanan swamy for guiding us throughout the seva. We arrived at the Thirukannankudi Kinchitkaram kudil on the morning of April 1st, 2023. The accommodation had all the amenities for a pleasant stay. We stayed in room no.2. I was very happy that the Trust has put in a lot of thought to provide facilities in the kudil. For example, the mosquito mesh to keep insects away and the UPS facility was really great. We spent quite some time in the sannidhanam and got the wonderful opportunity to recite Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam and Thiruppavai in front of the Perumal. Since it was Ekadasi day, we were blessed to watch the Thirumanjanam of Sri.Damodara Narayana Perumal. The temple itself is very nicely maintained. The nandavanam established by the Trust is well maintained. The temple archagar Sri.Prabhakaran Bhattar requested us to wash brass plates of the Perumal. We went to the Shravana Pushkarini and performed the cleaning. We really felt blessed to have got this opportunity to do kainkaryam to Perumal. Later we performed some cleaning in the sannidhi as well. The temple staff were very friendly and helpful during our entire trip. Sri Satyanarayanan swamy provided us Perumal prasadam during our stay. We were inspired by his way of life by being in Kainkarya seva to Perumal every day. With the blessings of Perumal, our Divya Desa anubhavam was very good. We also visited nearby temples too such as Sri AnantaNarayana Perumal of Avuraani, Sri SowriRaja Perumal of Thirukannapuram and Sri Bhaktavatsala Perumal of Thirukannamangai. I would sincerely request all devotees to visit Thirukannankudi to experience the divine bliss and get the blessings of Perumal.
Thank you for providing a great service. I have attached some photos of our trip.
