Thirtha Prabandha is one of the main Sanskrit works by Sri Vadiraja Swamy, the 16th century Dvaita philosopher and saint. The document is written in the form of a travelogue and contains descriptions of pilgrim centers throughout India.

The work comprises 235 shlokas and is divided into 4 chapters, one for each direction. Sri Vadiraja Swamy composed this document during his extensive pilgrimage throughout India. The shlokas, in addition to describing the places, also provides information on the sacredness of the places and praises the deities.

The chapter covering North India mentions important places such as Pandarapur, Prayagmarker, Kashi, Gayamarker, Mathuramarker and Ayodhyamarker. The chapter on South India covers Rameshwarammarker, Kanyakumarimarker and Trivandrummarker. The chapter on West India covers Pajaka, Udupimarker, Gokarnamarker and Kolhapurmarker. The chapter on East covers Purimarker, Ahobila and Hampimarker. A total of about 100 places are covered in the document. In addition to holy places, a lot of rivers, including Gangamarker, Yamunamarker, Kaveri and Godavari are mentioned.

Thirtha Prabandha is held in high esteem amongst practising Madhvas and a recitation of all the shlokas is considered equal to an actual pilgrimage covering all the mentioned places.
