108 Divya Desam
A Virtual Tour

In the SriVaishNava sampradAyam, a divya dEsam is a temple whose perumAL has been sung about by atleast one AzvAr. This is called ``maNgaLAsAsanam". There are 108 divya dEsams, 106 of them on this earth and 2 that are not. By far, the majority of these divya dEsams are in Tamizh nAdu. There are a few in the current day state of Kerala, and a couple in the current state of Andhra PradhEsh. There are also a few divya dEsams in Northern India.

Following is a list of 108 Divya Desam presented in multiple sections according to their location. We have also provided the list of Azhvaar Mangalaasaasanam for each of the Divya Desam. Each divya dEsam has the paasuram number as found in the Naalaayira Divya Prabandham WEB site maintained by Sri Mani Varadharajan.

Among the twelve aazhvaars, only 11 composed hymns on the 108 Divya dEsams. Poykaiaazhvaar composed hymns on 6 Divya dEsam, boothathaazhvaar on 13, peyaazhvaar on 15, thirumazhisai aazhvaar on 17, nammaazhvaar on 37, kulasekaraazhvaar on 9, periyaazhvaar on 18, Sri Andaal on 11 and thondaradip podiyaazhvaar on 1, respectively. Madhurakavi Azhvaar glorified Nammazhvaar in his hymns.

I would like to thank Sri N. Sampath of Madras, India, who took time and effort to gather the details regarding the 106 Divya Desam.
