      Shri NAPS Rao Avare,

      A minor point to make here is this:

      While "lifting and placing" of the rock is indeed in the village called kalasa (this is recorded in Madhva vijaya also - 16th sarga) as said by you, it may also be noted that the fact that there is a "madva rayar paarai" (as in Madva rayar's rock) in the Amaraavati river (near Udumulpet near trimurthy hills) and this isalso recorded in Shri CMP's book.

      Again - the book says that this is a place where acharyaru did his tapassu on his way back to rajatapeethapura (Udupi).

      Haraye namaha (and with namaskaras to the noble soul Shri CMP and  shri Madhvanatha teertharu)


      See the below statement verbatim from the book of Shri CMP (Page 100):

      In the middle of this river, a large flat rock rests on three boulders, forming a natural bridge, and allowing a free flow of the current underneath. The
      rock is sufficiently spacious to accomodate at least a hundred persons sitting down for a dinner. Tradition calls this by the name of " Madhvarayan Parai"
      meaning the rock of Madhvaraya. They add that Sri Madhva travelled to Trevandram by crossing the river (which is fordable easily at any point)
      and threading the footpaths of the hills leading to the State of Travancore.

      This mountain forms in fact the boundary between the modern British India and the said Native State. It is not therefore improbable that Sri Madhva took this
      TOUR THROUGH ·SOUTHERN INDIA. . It is likely that he spent su)11etime in the mantap of the sacred Thrimoorthi shrine, and that during his sojourn, 
      he spent long hours sitting on the rock bearing his name, and making tapas (meditative prayers) after his bath

      The link for the said book of Shri CMP is below (with due acknowledgements to the admin of this website who have done this noble job of making this book available to public):

      I have the book of Sri C M Padmanabhacharya 1983 edition, published by the family.
      The location of the placing of the Boulder by Acharya Madhva is near Ambutirtha near Kalasa in Karnataka on the river Thunga. There is also an inscription on the rock which says: Sri Madhvacharyena yekahasthena sthapithaa shilaa.
      People who quote others for authority should not misquote them and give wrong information for scoring brownie points.

      Coimbatore district has the Madhwarayan Rock on which Srimad Acharyaru sat and did Tapas, after positioning the mighty rock between the
      two streams of water falling from Thirumurthy Water falls. Details are available in the earliest English biography of Srimad Acharyaru by Sri
      CM Padmanabha Achar.
           Now in the same district ,near Karamadai, in Belladi village, a Brindavan
      with abundant carvings relating to Krishna stands discovered and reported
      in Indian Express.
          Karamadai Vishnu temple has the Sthala Purana identical to that of Udupi
