Sri Vadiraja Tirtharu has toured extensively throughout the country and visited many temples across. He has collected various informations from various places and brought to us in a single grantha, i.e., Tirtha prabandha, which is the masterpiece of Sri Vadirajaru.
Wherever he has visited, he has given the chintana of the temples, gods, goddesses, rivers, hills, etc., No where he has compromised for the Harisarvottamatva and Vayujeevottamatva. It is the duty of every body who travels on a piligrimage to carry the Tirtha prabandha Grantha and do the paarayana, chintana of that particular place. Had he not given the importance of those places, one may not have had the privilege of the chintana of that place.
We have tried to bring the PDF format of Tirthaprabandha in Kannada, Tamil, Sanskrit and Telugu lipi for the benefit of the readers. Further, we have collected the information from his grantha based on Kshetrawise importance. In Shaiva kshetras, one can have the darshana of Shiva, similarly in Narasimha kshetra, we have the vision of Narasimha kshetras, etc….
