Speaking to media, Prof. Puranik said that the renovated Raghavendra Math has long history and enduring dedication of a devotee. Back in early 1990’s, the land which is now the Holy Abode of Sri Raghavendra Swami was just another plot in Kulur-Kavoor road. No one would have imagined it will one day bear the sacred Vrindavanam, except Sri Guru Raya himself and his ardent devotee Smt. Rohini Sadashiva Rao or Rohini Amma as she was lovingly called whom Sri Guru chose to build this shrine in order to bless the devotees near and far.
On the request of Rohini Amma, Mrs. Indira and Dr. Ravichandran of Diya Soft, both staunch followers of Sri Guru Raghavendra agreed to fill her dream. Dr. Ravinchadran with reverence approached Shri Vidhyadheesha Theertha Swamiji, the present Paryaya of Sri Palimaru Mutt to take over the math who agreed to his wish. Dr. Ravichandran and his wife decided to build a new Vrindavana and Math for Sri. Guru Raghavendra at the existing location. They were able to acquire additional land from Rohini Amma’s brothers for this purpose. Rest is history. The new Math complex was built with a cost of over three Crores.
