sthala of udayanangai, Nammazhwar's mother. Udayanangai and her
husband Kari observed penance for 41 days and the Lord bestowed
them with a son, who became the Prapannajana Santhana Kootastar
of Sri Vaishnava Satsampradaya.
As per the stahala purana, Lakshmi was taken aback by seeing the
Ugra(Ferocious) swaroopa of the Lord after slaying Hiranya and performed
tapas. The Lord took His normal pleasant form at the request of
Prahlada and came in search of Lakshmi here. Lakshmi became very
happy and took her rightful place in the heart of the Lord. Hence
the Lord here is called Tiruvazhmarban and place called Tirupatisaram
as the Lord resides here.
