1.0 Creation of Google Map of   Sri Rama Temples

 India is a land of tens of thousands of divine Hindu temples; The least gratitude one can show to the several men and women who had conceptualized and constructed these temples is to have darshan of as many temples as possible within our lifetime and receive the divine blessings.

Google Map of Temples : It would greatly facilitate planning the tour program if locations of the temples are available marked in Google Map. For Padal Petra Sthalams (sung by the great Saivaite Saints (Appar,Gnana  sambhandar, Manikkavasagar & Sundarar), web link 1 are already available  web link 2   Also for Divya Desams (Sung by alwars), web link  is already available

I have tried to create  Google Maps for the following :  Map of  1000 Murugan / Subhramanya / Kartik temples  , please see the web link   Map of  800 Sri Narasimha / Narasingh temples,    please see the web link  Map of Vaipu Sthalangal  please see    web link :

For Sri Rama Temples,,  no such google map is available. I have tried to mark them in Google Maps with the help of the information available (See References at the end of the blog). I was in for a big surprise- the numbers went on increasing exponentially! I could mark more than 2000 Rama temples ;nearby each Rama temple, we can invariably see an Anjaneya Temple and so together we can see some 4000 temples combined for Sri Rama & Anjaneya.. It is also noted that Sri Rama temples are evenly distributed throughout India. An interactive Google Map embedded in the post is given at the end of the blog:          Map web link

Data link and photographs have been given wherever information is available about the temples. Some of the temples could not be located; Details of some temples are not available. Hence if you happen to visit such temples, please give me the information / photos about them so that I can update.

I have started a You tube Channel  Kshetradanam – Pilgrimage    which gives much more information for the temples than given in this blog. Some of the Sri Rama  temples are given below. I will be adding more videos shortly. See below my You tube video which gives a lot of information about this temple.

2.0 Important Rama Temples: I have given below some of the Important Rama Temples. All the Sri Rama temples are important – but based on the historical importance and devotees that visit these temples, I have attempted to name a few out of 2000 temples.

  1. Ram Janmbhoomi, Ayodhya –    Ayodhya Ram mandir resized  Sri Ram was born in Ram Janma bhoomiAyodhya and so this place  is sacred . Ayodhya is located on the banks of the river Sarayu. Ram Janmabhoomi (literally, “Rama’s birthplace”) is the site that is believed to be the birthplace of Rama, the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu.  The Mughals demolished a Hindu shrine that marked the spot, and constructed a mosque in its place.  The five judges Supreme Court bench heard the title dispute cases from August to October 2019.[On 9 November 2019, the Supreme Court ordered the land to be handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple. It also ordered to the government to give alternate 5 acre land to Sunni Waqf Board to build the mosque. On 5 February 2020, the trust known as Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra was created by the Government of India. The trust will oversee the construction of the Ram Mandir. The foundation stone for construction of the temple was laid on 5 August 2020 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.                                                                                                                           Believed to be discovered by king Vikramaditya. Rama Janma Bhoomi is where Lord Rama was said to have taken birth. There is a small Lord Rama temple here. Hopefully Shri Ram Mandir would be completed in 3 years.
  2. Shree Ram Janaki Mandir, Janakpur  Nepal, Queen Vrisha Bhanu of Tikamgarh, India built the temple in 1910 AD.In 1657, a Janakpur Nepalgolden statue of the Goddess Sita was found at the very spot, and Sita is said to have lived there. It is often considered the most important model of Rajput architecture in Nepal. Fully built in bright white and constructed in an area of 4,860 sq. feet in a mixed style of Mughal and Rajput domes, the temple is 50 meters high. It is a three-storied structure made entirely of stone and marble
  3. Raghunath temple , Jammu the Ragunath temple is a fine example  of craftsmanship. Raghunath Temple consists of Jammu raghunath temple1a complex of seven   shrines, each with its own Shikhara. It is one of the largest temple complexes of north India.The temple was built during the period 1822–1860 by order of Maharaja Ranjit Singh The temple has many gods in its complex of shrines, but the presiding deity is Rama, The Mughal architectural influence is seen in all the spiral shaped towers which have gold plated spires, except the tower over the main shrine which is said to be in Sikh architectural style. The niches in the walls of the shrines are decorated with 300 well crafted images of deities. The paintings in the 15 panels of the main shrine are based on themes from Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Bhagavad Gita
  4. Kanak Bhavan Temple, Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh : The ‘Kanak Bhawan’ is the biggest, religiously one of the most important Kanak-Bhavan-Temple-Ayodhyaand architecturally an aesthetically built temple dedicated to Lord Ram and his divine consort Sita. Its magnificence and charm is not only restricted to its external façade, but the deities installed in the sanctum are so beautiful and captivating to behold that one is left dumbfounded and spell-bound once one sees them.  Conceived more as a sprawling palace rather than as a shrine,  the Kanak Bhavan Temple resembles magnificent palaces of Bundelkhand and Rajasthan region of India. Its history dates back to Treta Yug when it was gifted by Ram’s step-mother Kaikeyi to him and his consort Sita as a marriage gift. With the passage of time it fell to ruin, and was reconstructed and renovated many times
  5. Tripayar Shri Rama Temple – Located in KeralaThriprayar-temple this temple has many legends associated with it. The idol of this temple was found floating in the water by the head of the village. Since the idol has the essence of Shiv, Vishnu and Brahma that is why it is prayed to as the Trimurti.

In the medieval era one of his devotees removed the bamboo temple and constructed a new Ram temple here.The famous Bhakta Ramadas was always distracted and his intense love for Lord Rama compelled him to build a temple at Bhadrachalam. He collected money for the construction from the citizens, but was not enough. So he borrowed from the tax revenue of the nawab and gave his god a worthy abode, vowing to return the money. However, the nawab was furious and sentenced Ramadas to 12 years in prison.Frustrated at god’s indifference to his pleadings,  Ramadas composed some of the finest keertanas in his prison cell (reminding Rama of his services in Ikshvaku Kula Tilaka). Bhadrachalam ramrIt is said that Rama & Lakshmana in the guise of two youngsters paid up his dues and got his release papers. The golden coins paid by Rama are known as Ram Tanka coins .They can be seen even today. These coins have the Pattabhishekam scene on one side and the picture of another Rama Bhaktha, Hanuman, on the other side. The nawab was moved and recognized the greatness of Ramadas and released him immediately and gave him land around Bhadraachalam to continue his dedicated service to Bhadraachala

Kadalur.  From time immemorial, devotees have referred to the Sree Rama here as “Perumaal”. Rama is depicted in Poornaroopa with four arms (“Chathurbaahu”) carrying the conch, discus, mace and lotus.

After Rama departure from Ayodhya to take on the forest life as Pithurvakya Paripalana dharma (obeying Mudikondan_3the command of father), Sri Rama visited the hermitage of Sage Bharadwaja on his way. When the sage offered him a feast, Sri Rama respectfully declined to accept the offer as he was on a mission then and promised to accept it on his return to Ayodhya. On his return after the Ravana Vadha (killing) while returning to Ayodhya, the Pushpaka Vimana (the divine aircraft) landed at the sage’s ashram. When sage Bharadwaja offered the dinner, Sri Rama said that he had to perform the puja to Lord Sri Ranganatha before the feast. The sage installed Sri Ranganatha as desired by Rama.

During such stay, the sages/rishis prayed in earnest, asking them to stay forever. As Sri Rama need to return back to fulfill promise made to Bharatha, his brother, he called up Vishvakarma and sketched his enchanting divine form as an idol,  and left  it outside the ashrama. The rishis who came to see them the next day were spellbound and mesmerized by the beautiful statue. Still hyptonized by what they saw, the sages agreed for Sri Rama to leave for Ayodhya, on one condition that leave the statue with them. Sri Rama, with a smile, agreed to their request and left the statue behind. These historical statues of Lord Rama, Lord Sita and Lord Hanuman are none other than the ones currently at Vaduvur Temple.

Perhaps this is the only temple where Sita and Lakshmana are positioned like this, as popular renderings of the trio (Rama, Lakshmana, and Sita) depict Sita to Rama’s left. The idols are best described by the poet Sri. Da. Ra. Bendre: “All the three idols appear to be walking towards the viewer looking at the placement of their feet. The sculptor has carved intricately the crown, jewellery and the positions of the bodies. Sita’s posture, eyes looking down, her jewellery are sculpted really well.”. Legends say that the place was the residence of nine siddhas who performed penance near a pond in the village known as Siddha Pushkarni and that as Parashurama too lived here, it was called Bhargavapuri, or “town of Bhargava (Parashurama).
