Hats off to the work done by the people.It is good know more about our saints and the aradhana. I want to know where Sri Sri Surendra Teertharu Brindavan is situated in Madurai so that we can visit there. We also suggest they can mention the locality and how to reach such places so that people interestded to have darshan can do that.S.Venkataraman,chennai
