At SriRangam utsavams take place throughout the year but Panguni Uthsavam also known as Adhi Bramhotsavam occupies pride of place mainly because of Perumal-Thayar Serthi on Panguni Utthiram day. It is called Adhi because it was the utsavam which was celebrated first or could we say it is because it The First among utsavams. Brahma started it on the day SriRanga vimana emerged from the ocean of milk in Satya lokam. Then the Ikswakus celebrated it when they obtained the SriRanga Vimanam as their wealth. Sri Ramachandra who took avatharam in this vamsam(clan) gifted this to His favourite devotee Vibhishana.Vibhishana who was carrying this Vimana stopped at Sesha Peetam an island formed by two Kaveris to perform the Panguni Utsavam. Once the utsavam was over Vibhishana wanted to carry the Vimanam to Lanka but Ranganatha desired to live on this island.The devotee had to agree and the Lord reclined facing His bhaktha’s country.Thenceforth SeshaPeetam becameSriRangam.
