  Temple History:
     
  Acharya Sri Raghvendra was born to Sri Thimmanna Bhattar and Srimathi Gobikambal in 17th Century. They were living near Hosapet in Bellary district. His brilliance began to show even when he was too young. Young Raghavdndra learnt all Vedas and Sastras under the tutelage of Sri Sudhindrar in Kumbakonam.
His marital life was a tragedy. His wife committed suicide by falling into a well. Sri Raghavendra took to pilgrimages to various shrines. His miracles include elevating an ignorant man to a high post, bringing a famine in Thanjavur to an end and making it a fertile land again and bringing back to life his sishya (disciple) who died of snake bite.
Sri Raghavendras came to know that Mantralaya was the place where Vishnu Bhakta Prahlada perform Yagna and wanted to have his Brindavan (Samadhi-monument) there for himself. He chanted the song composed by himself, "Indu Enake Govinda" and reciting the Narayana Nama, entered the Brindavan and attained Jeeva Samadhi.
Construction of Brindavans began then throughout South India. Responding to the devout appeals of people of Erode, 250 years ago, a Vedic Scholar Ramachar went to Mantrayalaya in Andhra and brought the Mruthika (holy sand), carried it on his head and returned to Erode all the way by walk and built a small Brindavan on the banks of Cauvery and conducted the consecration – Kumbabishekam.
This Brindavan is very ancient and the first in Tamilnadu and the third in India. There was a stone Mandap and a tower on the Anjaneya Shrine. A Sanskrit scholar working in Mahajana High School, Krishnachar collected donations from the devotees, constructed a Brindavan with seven peetas using granite stones and built a huge Brindavan in Mantralaya in the year 1912. The consecration of the Brindavan was also celebrated the same year.
A Rajagopuram – main tower – with Ram-Sita-Anjaneya was built in the year 1938 and consecration performed. There was a dark mandap here infested by bats and was called bat mandap. This was demolished and a new Mandap is built now.
