In the year 1858, after leaving Chennai our Swami agreed to the affectionate request of one pious Venkata Reddiyar to be his guest of honour in his residence at Karunguzhi, a hamlet about four miles southeast of Vadalore. During this period Swami did many miracles including an oillamp burnt with water and wrote many poems of Thiruarutpa. Swami lived here for nine years untill 1867. This holy place is opened for dharshan to the devotees.
