    I was very impressed by this rare of the rarest photos of Namma Rayaru. I have picked up one big photo and kept it in our Pooja room.

    Every heart beat of mine says “Raghavendra”. What a superb painting. I actually spoke to one by name Pradeep and he told that there are many such painting. I am planning to go and visit. If i find any i will upload it.

    And by the way i am searching for the song sung by Sree Sree Vidhyabhushana. “Thunga Thiradhi Nintha Yathivararyare……” If any one knows about it please help me in finding it. Name of the album or the shop where i can get. my email ID is bungy.sri@gmail.com.

    Wish to see many more photos of Sree Raghavendra Swamy.

    Namo Gururaya.
