Initial visit to brindavana(Nov 2017)
News articles published in the local newspapers paved the interest in the Madhwa community of Coimbatore to visit this brindavana. A group of members from Singanallur Agraharam visited Bellathi in the month of November 2017(just few days after the publication of article) and recited vayu sthuthi here.
Singanallur team was unable to conclude whether the brindavanam belongs to madhwa matha or not because of Gajalakshmi and Iyengar nama engraved on the brindavana.
Sudden rise of popularity:
Channel coverage(Vendhar TV) on Bellathi titled “The Mahan who cures diseases” gained attention among public especially across Tamilnadu in visiting this place.
Thanks to Social media era. Lots of information was shared and exchanged through facebook and whatsapp. This place and brindavana came into limelight very soon.
People from all parts of Tamilnadu and Karnataka especially on thursdays and weekends started visiting this place in the month of April and May in huge numbers.
During the month of May, A team from matha visited this place and confirmed this brindavana belongs to Sri Lakshmidhara theertharu of Mulubagulu matha.
Sri Lakshmidhara theertharu(Period 1325 – 1335) is the direct sishyaru of Sri Padmanabha thirtharu(one of the four direct shishyaru of Sri Madhwacharyaru).
This brindavana is located on the banks of koushika river. Opposite to brindavana, a giant adisesha is carved in a rock.
Sri Lakshmidhara thirtharu aradhane falls on Margashira shukla Pournami. Brindavana is decorated with rich carvings like dasavthara at top and gajalakshmi in front facing. Also gopinatha devaru, kaliya mardhana krishna and crawling krishna on the other sides.

Laksmidara Theertharige saashtaanga namanagalu.
Why is this Brindhavana not under the Madhwa mutt control? Is there a agraghara near this place? How to get this Brindhavana under the Madhwa mutt control? any measures taken?
No agrahara nearby now. It is believed that there was one long time ago.
Hopefully we gain control over this place very soon
Is this confirmed that it belongs to Sri Lakshmi dhara Theerathar as Srivaishnava sign is also there? And also the people there saying it is not yet confirmed that whose brindavana is this and Sri A.M Rajagopalan Sir also visited to this place and interviewed in vendhar channel. Any historical evidences that swamy was here in his final days ? How they concluded that this is Sri Lakshmi Dharan theeratha brindavana? Can you share that information also ? Will be grateful to you.🙏🙏
Hari Om 🙏
Sri Laksmidhara tirtha Gurubhyo namaha. I think we have unearthed one more brindavana of Madhva Yati.
