  3. Anudhinam.org is a boon for all the Vaishnavites and others at large. It presents the Uthsavams of all Divyadesams on the digital screen. Those who deprived off visitig the Divyadesams, Abhimanasthalams and temples at hitherto unkown Villages are benifited. Further it arouses interest to view them again and again and thereby instill Bhakthimargam of our revered Acharyas.
