Significance of the temple:
Nambi in Tamil means a person of flawless traits. This is the only Divyadesa where Perumal came as a Guru and offered Mudradanam to a devotee
The sanctum sanctorum is so designed centering the glory of Mother. She is a little ahead of Perumal in a standing form. Worshipping Thayar-Mother in this form is considered to be very beneficial to the devotees. During processions too, Mother goes forward, Lord following Her. First abishekam is dedicated to Her only.During all festive occasions, the first rights are reserved for women, who moves ahead, while men follows her.
Sri Garuda Bhagwan graces the devotees from His shrine holding 9 snakes
Generally only wooden or panchaloha idols are used for procession deities. Here stone deities are used for the purpose.
Chola king Kochenganan is a staunch Lord Shiva devotee and occupies a place among the Nayanmars. He has built about 70 Shiva temples in his life. He had a desire to see Lord Perumal in His abode Vaikuntam. He prayed to Perumal. Lord Prumal granted darshan to the king with two hands and ordered him to build a temple for Him. The king built a temple with Shiva temple design with Yalis-a lion-like pillar, enabling the devotees to have darshan of Perumal from all sides. This is a Mada-type temple. Tirumangai Azhawar mentions this temple as Mani Mada Koil
Sage Medhavi was a staunch Perumal (Lord Vishnu) devotee. He wanted to have Lord as his son-in-law. He performed penance sitting under the Vanjula tree to have Mother Mahalakshmi as his daughter. Mother appeared before the sage as a little pretty girl before him on the Utharam star day in Panguni (March-April). The sage named Her Vanjuladevi and brought Her up in his hermitage.
Lord Mahavishnu came to earth in five forms as Sangarshanan, Pradyumnan, Anirudhan, Purushothaman and Vaasudevan to find Mahalakshmi and marry Her. Each searched for Mother in different directions. Garuda Bhagwan who accompanied the Lord, spotted Mother in the Sage’s ashram and informed the Lord. Perumal expressed His desire to the sage to marry his daughter. The sage accepted Lord’s wish on one condition that his daughter would have all powers in all matters. Perumal agreed to the condition and had the hands of Mother. Lord told Garuda that he should have His place here blessing the devotees as He had to be under the influence of wife. Thus Garuda Bhagwan became prominent in the temple. The place came to be known as Nachiar koil
