Aim Behind the Statue

Sri Ramanujacharya, An Icon Of Equality
Sri Ramanujacharya, An Icon Of Equality

Saint Ramanujacharya was a great social reformer, spiritual leader, and constant inspiration in his lifetime and across the span of time. He presented the essence of Vedas in the form of 9 scriptures. Ramanujacharya ensured equality across Social Status, Gender, Religions, and castes and is considered an “icon of equality”.

Chinna Jeeyar Swami came up with this idea in 2014 which was completed after 8 years. The aim of building the Statue of Equality is to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of Swami Ramanujacharya. Along with that to educate new generations about the most influential thinker of devotional Hinduism, Swami Ramanujacharya.
