Help Support The Renovation of This Temple


This temple is associated with Shri Nathamuni, a predecessor of Sri Ramanuja in Sri Vaishnava sampradaya.

Owing to the fact that he recovered the divine compositions of Azhwars, the 4000 Divya prabandham, Nathamuni is considered to be the first among the Acharya vamsa in Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya.

It is believed that Nathamuni spent his last days in this area and that Sri Ranganatha gave Darshan to Nathamuni here before he attained Vaikunta Prapti.

The Nellithope Perumal temple has finally started its renovation! The Andal sannidhi was saved before it could collapse. Next, the outer walls of the temple will be renovated. Please help donate today to help us reach our goal!


The crumbling temple walls have started to be renovated! We still need another 5 lakhs ($6,849 USD) to reach our goal to renovate the garbha griha so please help donate today!


We received some more donations due to some wonderful sponsors but still need another 4 lakhs ($5,063 USD) to reach our goal to renovate the garbha griha so please help donate today!


We did it! Not only did we raise enough funds to fully renovate the Garbha Griha but we have almost raised the entire amount needed to finish the whole temple! Gratitude to all who donated! We will be posting photo and videos updates on the renovations as they happen so stay tuned!


The Garbha Griha renovation has started!  Please keep in mind we NEVER use cement or any modern materials for temple renovations. We only use authentic materials that follow how the temple was originally built and whose use is sanctioned in the shastras. We will be posting more photo and videos updates as they happen so stay tuned!


The renovation is nearly complete! Govt officials have informed us that we need to install the outside temple flooring before the Kumbha Abhishekam so we have adjusted the fundraiser goal to include the cost of the additional flooring. Please help us to reach the goal and ensure the completion of this sacred temple!
