Tirumangai Azhwar exhausted all the money he had for the renovation of Srirangam temple. He had nothing left to pay the wages for workers. He prayed to Lord to show him a way to pay wages. The divine voice pointed out a spot on the banks of Kollidam and asked Azhwar to come there to collect the money.
Azhwar went there and found a trader wearing a turban holding a measuring bowl (marakkal), palm leaf and Ezhuthani. The trader told Azhwar that Lord Ranganatha had sent him to help Azhwar and asked him his need. Tirumangai required money from him to pay wages for the workers.
The trader said that he had no money but the Marakkal he had would fulfill the need. He said that he would give sand measured in his bowl which will turn into gold only to such workers who sincerely worked and would remain sand itself to those insincere. Azhwar accepted the condition. To many, it was sand only. The workers felt that the trader was a magician and began to attack him. He began to run and Azhwar too chased him. The trader stopped at this place. Azhwar asked him who he was and Lord appeared in His true form. Lord Perumal appears in His reclining form with His consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi. He has His Marakal-measuring bowl- as the pillow holding the palm and ezhuthani in His left hand. Lord is resting in this form after looking into the needs of His devotees.
Lord Shiva once plucked one of he heads of Lord Brahmma and that stuck to His hands. He could not separate it from His hand and incurred the Brahmmahati dosha. So Lord Shiva had the curse removed by worshipping Perumal here. Lord Shiva has his due place in the sanctum near Perumal
