Temple Legend:

Once upon a time a great deluge occurred in the Brahmaloka that disturbed Brahma and he went into a deep sleep. An Asura named Somukhan utilised this opportunity and stolen the book which contained the secrets of world’s creation.

Brahma woke up and found his books missing. He decided to seek the help of Vishnu to regain his books. So, he searched for a place for his penance. He created a man out of a stick and sent him to find a suitable place on the banks of river Tamirabarani. But the man got infatuated by the beauty of a damsel and settled in her village and got married to her.

Brahma came to know of this again created a woman out of his kamandala and sent her for the same purpose. This time she found a suitable place that looked like heaven. Brahma was satisfied with the place and started his penance after taking a bath in a pond ( kalasa theertham).

Vishnu was pleased with the penance of Brahma and appeared before him asking what he wanted. Brahma explained his position and requested Vishnu to help get back his secret books. Vishnu fought with the asura Somukhan and recovered the book from him after killing the asura . Brahma was so grateful to Vishnu and praised him very much for his help. Before leaving this place Brahma named this place Sri Vaikuntam because Vishnu appeared before him coming all the way from Vaikuntam. He requested the Lord Vishnu to continue to stay here and bless the devotees
