Parikara Sthalam for curing diseases not cured by doctors
Missing people are said to be found after a visit to this temple
Located a few hundred yards south of the bus stand is the 450year Srinivasa Perumal Temple in Srirangam where the handsome Lord is seen in an East facing Standing Posture.

The Moolavar Deity was installed by the Palahari Purushottama Ramanuja Jeer (I) in the 2nd half of the 16th Century. The idol is believed to have been the Abhisekha deity of the Jeer and is said to have been brought from Kandagi, Nepal along with several of the large Saligrama stones that are seen inside the temple.

There are two sacred trees inside the temple. The significance of the Ashoka tree that is seen to the North of the sanctum dates back to the Ramayana. Sita spent her days of captivity in Lanka in the Ashoka Vanam. The 2nd tree seen to the North East of the Sanctum is the ‘Nelli’ Tree
