Shila Mantapa at Mantralayam

An incarnation of Prahaladaraja Shri Raghavendra Gurusarvabhouma who is like the wish fulfilling cow Kamadhenu to his devotees converted Manchaali village – the land of spiritual aspirants at the banks of the Tungabhadra River to Mantralaya. He had performed a sacrificial ceremony at this very place in his previous birth and entered into the Vrindavana alive at the same spot and continues to bless those who repose faith in him even to this day.

Shri Rayaru was an epitome of paramount virtuousness. With the inspiration of Shri Gururaja, His Holiness Shri Shri Suyateendra Theertha Shripaadangalavaru has undertaken a commitment to rebuild the sanctum sanctorum of Shri Rayaru completely to create a covered stone structure with pillars in ancient architectural style. The estimated cost of this construction is about Ten crore rupees.
Just as Lord Shri Rama despite being capable himself, gave the squirrel an opportunity to participate in the construction of the bridge and bestowed his grace upon it, similarly, though Shri Matha is capable of constructing this stone pavilion, both the Swamiji's wish to present the unique opportunity to all the devotees to make a contribution towards this project and be blessed.

Abiding by the directive of his Guru, the successor of Shri Matha His Holiness Shri Subudhendra Theertha Shripaadangalavaru has taken over the leadership of this enormous project.

We welcome everyone to take part in this service and be blessed.


  • The value of each of the stone slab that will be used in the construction of this structure is estimated to be Rs.5000/-. Every stone slab used in the construction of the interior enclosure around the Vrindavana may be sponsored by devotees.
  • Each stone slab donated by the devotee will be offered only after taking their names in the Sankalpa. A devotee may donate any number of stone slabs.
  • Every donor will receive a commemorative memento from His Holiness Shripaadangal along with his blessings.

After constructing and offering the Stone Mandap to Shri Gururaja, the surplus funds thus accrued will be utilized for the new building construction of Shri Gurusarvabhouma Samskruta Vidya Peetha; another residence of Shri Gururaja.

“The golden opportunity to participate in the restructuring of Gururaja's shrine doesn't come again and again. Come, participate, be blessed. “The less fortunate cannot gain access to his service.”
