During a chat between Lord Vishnu and his consort Thirumagal in Vaikundam, She requested to the Lord that he might turn his dark complexion to golden by getting the grace of Lord Siva who was executing the threefold job of creation, preservation and Destruction. The Lord agreed and left to the Kanchi shrine and created holy water in front of Veerattakasam using his chakra weapon. He took the bath in Chakra Theertham every day and worshipped Veerattakasar with 14,000 lotus flowers. Lord Shiva, who was delighted, appeared with Uma Devi and granted his wish to change his complexion from dark colour to golden colour. Hence in this temple, Lord Vishnu appears in golden colour.
