Goswami Tulsidas (Probably 1497 - 1623): Goswami Tulsidas composed the famous Ramcharitmanas. He spent most of his life in Varanasi and Ayodhya. He had the darshan of Bhakta Hanuman at Varanasi. With the help of Hanuman he had the darshan of Sri Rama in child form at Chitrakoota who applied a tilaka of sandal paste on him.

Bhadrachalam Ramadasu (1620 - 1680): Ramadasu renovated the Rama temple at Bhadrachalam with revenue collections of Sultan without his permission. He was therefore sent to prison by the Sultan. Ramadasu composed many devotional songs there known as Ramadaasu Keertanalu. He praised the Lord for his mysterious ways and surrendered to Him. After twelve years Sri Rama came in the dream of the Sultan and gave him gold coins to repay the debt of Ramadasu.
