A renowned Vedic scholar, the 57-year-old pontiff hails from Thirukannamangai village near Kumbakonam. He was chosen by the 45 Azhagiyasingar to be the next jeer. Sri Ranganatha Yatheendra Mahadesikan took ‘sanyasa ashram’ in 2009.

The ‘pattabishekam’ of the new pontiff will be held at 8.30 a.m. at the Dasavathara Sannidhi in Srirangam on Thursday.
