Lord MahaVishnu or Narayana is so touched by the poems of his devout devotees. Divine Tamil poet saints called â€˜Azhwarsâ€™ lived their whole lives immersed in meditation of God and espoused emotional service to Lord Vishnu in their famous songs or hymns full of longing, ecstasy and service. These poems help revive Bhakti in Kali Yuga. The temples where Azhwars sang the elixir of â€˜Mangalaa Shasanamâ€™ and mentioned in their orks/poems are considered Divya Desams. The word â€˜Divyaâ€™ means â€˜Premium/Eliteâ€™ and the word â€˜Desamâ€™ indicates â€˜land/placeâ€™. Visiting these elite temples is believed to awaken the spiritual consciousness, dormant in many of us and ignite Bhakti in the hearts of the pilgrims. These holy temples are spread through Tamil Nadu (85), Kerala (11), Uttar Pradesh (4), Uttarakhand (3), Andhra Pradesh (2) and Gujarat (1), and Country of Nepal(1) - Muktinath.
