The mutt of Sri Raghavendra Swamy at Nanjangud is "prateeka sannidhaana" of Sri Raayaru. The prateeka (idol) of Sri Guru Raayaru was found at Srirangapatna in the River Cauvery and was installed in the matha (mutt) at Nanjangud by Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu.
Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu had aspirations to attain brindavana in the proximity of Brindavana of Sri Raghavendra Swamy at Mantralaya and Sri Raayaru himself came in the dreams of Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu and revealed that he wound come to the place of Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu (Nanjangud) and instructed to receive his idol from a brahman and install it at Nanjangud. In same time, Raayaru appeared in the dream of a brahman in Srirangapatna and instructed to collect his idol from the washerman near the Cauvery River and give it to Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu.
A washerman at the River Cauvery in Srirangapatna once started to here the sound "Om" when he was beating the clothes on the stone slab which he was using regularly and got astonished and stopped using that stone for washing the clothes. Sri Raayaru appeared in dream of the washerman the same night and instructed him to give this stone to the brahman who will come to you for it and revealed that his idol was in that stone slab.
Sri Raghavendra Swamy also appeared in the dream of Mummadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar, the then Maharaja of Mysore and ordered the king to provide the support to Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu for the installation of the idol at Nanjangud. Sri Raayaru came in the dreams of the above 4 persons at the same time and the next day the idol was given to Sri Sugnanendra Theertharu at Nanjangud and the idol of Sri Raghavenfra Swamy was installed in the Moola Matha at Nanjangud.
