For those who do not know, there are two main sects of Sri Vaishnavism: Thenkalai and Vadakalai.

The Vadakalai sect wear their namam, or thiruman, in a "U" shaped pattern with manjal or yellow like this:

And the Thenkalai sect wear it in a "Y" shaped pattern with kunkumam or red like this:

Also, for those who are interested, one of the differences in ritual was previously discussed herehere, but for this question I would like to know more about the differences in belief.
