Vellore Fort was constructed during the period of Kings Bommireddy & Timmireddy Nayaks. Do you know that this fort still stands strong because of the blessings of Sri Sri 1008 Sri Sathyadhiraja Tirtha?
Yes, it is because of His Holiness Sri Sri 1008 Sri Sathyadhiraja Teertharu.
When the Kings initially constructed the Fort the stones/ bricks did not stand properly due to the erosion in the soil. The Kings called up those days Architects and proceeded with the construction but unfortunately, all their efforts went in vain. Finally, they decided to have Darshana of Sri Satyadhiraja Teertha Mahaswamigalu who was staying at Shenbakkam. When His Holiness was made aware of the situation, He meditated upon Sri Moolaraama Devaru and asked the Kings to construct the Fort with little Brindhavanas in between the fort (Please refer to the pictures below).
They did as per the directions of Sri Swamiji and the Fort that you see today stands strong, and looks beautiful till date because of the blessings and divine powers of Sri Sri 1008 Sri Satyadhiraja Teertha Mahaswamigalu. Such is the greatness of the Peethadipathis of Sri Uttaradi Math Parampara.
