Raghu Veera Gadhyam is one of the many brilliant and moving stotrams composed by Sri Vedantha Desikan, while he was residing in Thiruvahindrapuram. At this divya desam, there are the most beautiful Archa murthys of Sri Ramachandra, Sita Devi, and Lakshmana. Swami Desikan was thrilled one day by the incomparable beauty of Sri Ramachandra giving darsanam as Kodhanda Rama at this kshetram and recollections about the extraordinary valour of our Lord and his deeds on the battle field as the Maha Veera at Lanka. Inspired by those thoughts, he summarized in his splendid Gadhyam (work in prose style ) the Vaibhavam of this Maha Veera and named it appropriately Maha Veera Vaibhavam. Later this work came to be known by its popular name of Raghu Veera Gadhyam.
