In the year 2003 Asirvanam Monastery sold part of its land and bought some land in Shivagangai, Tamil Nadu for a future monastery. We purchased the land in Shivagangai on 19th March 2003. The house was blessed by Most Rev. Bishop Edward, the Bishop of Shivagangai on 22nd May 2003. We have about 25 acres of land with coconut trees, mango trees, sugar cane, paddy etc. At present there are four monks staying there. It is situated 1 km from Karungalakudy Village. Occasionally a few members from Asirvanam go there for a temporary stay. The nearest Parish Church is in Okkur, about 4 km away.
