Temple Legend

Temple Legend

Legents related to This Temple
The god Vishnu was pleased by the worship of the childless Chola king Nanda Chola and blessed the king that Lakshmi, his consort, would be born to the king and at an appropriate age, the god would get married to her. The king found the child in a lotus tank while hunting in a forest. Since the child was born out of the lotus, she was named Kamalvalli by the king. The time came when Kamalavalli fell in love with Vishnu in the form of Ranganathar, the presiding deity of Srirangam Ranganathaswamy temple. The Chola king readily got her married to Ranganathar. He built a temple to commemorate the occasion. The event is celebrated as Serthi Sevai festival every year. Since Vishnu appeared as Azhagiya Manavalan, meaning a beautiful groom, the temple is called Azhagiya Manavalan Temple.
