Swami Desikan Thirunakshatram Utsavam was celebrated in a grand manner at Sathyagalam yesterday, November 10, 2103, Sunday. The Thirunakshathram celebrations included Avabratha Thula Snanam at the Cauvery river at 9:30 in the morning. The Utsava Murthy of Sri Vedantha Desikar was taken in procession to the River accompanied by HH Sri Sri Abhinava Vaageesha Brahmatanthra Swatanthra Parakala Mutt Jeeyar, who took part in the holy snaanam and celebrations.

Swami Desikan has written several books during his stay here.

Specialty of the temple:  Swami Desikar in this temple is found in Ninra Thirukolam (standing posture) as compared to other temples where he is in sitting posture. It is said that he was standing and curiously looking at Srirangam to check if everything is set right for him to return. Swami Desikar is standing on Kooramsanam that was formed naturally by granite for Swami’s daily anusthtanam.
