Significance of the temple:
Lord Tiruvazh Marban (Lord in whose chest Mother Mahalakshmi-Goddess of Wealth resides) graces devotees with His four hands, one assuring safety (Abhayahastha) and holding the conch and discus in other hands. The 9 feet tall idol is made of a material called Kadu Sarkarai Yogam, a mixture of stone and lime and coated with a glue made with sugar and mustard. Hence, no abishek is performed to the presiding deity, but performed only to the procession deity
It is believed that the Lord grants the wishes of all the devotees who offer milk
Legends says thats Lakshmi was taken aback by seeing the Ugra(Ferocious) swaroopa of the Lord Narasimha after slaying Hiranyakasipu 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.
Yudhishtira on his way to Rameswaram stayed here. The day he visited this temple is celebrated as Karthika Bali Utsavam as the star on the day Yudhishtira visited was Karthika.
Long back there was a pit during the Chola period, near which people used to milk the cows, fill the pots and bring it to the King's court. One day a miracle happened and the milk from one of the pots disappeared completely. Suddenly, a voice came out which asked him to fill the pit entirely with milk. The pit was really a huge one, however, the king obeyed the lord and with the help of his people got the entire pit filled with milk. Just as the milk reached the brim, a divine light splashed and lord Vishnu in the avatar of Kuralappan Venkatachalapati appeared and gave darshan to the King. The lord was very pleased with his devotion and dedication and hence agreed to stay in that spot. Later on the king built a magnificent temple on the same location which is today known as the Kuralappan Venkatachalapati Perumal Vishnu Temple.
Saptha rishis were performing thier penance near this place called Gnanaranyam near Suchindram. Lord Shiva appeared in fornt of them as Sthanumalaya Perumal and when they expressed their desire to see Lord Vishnu, they were advised by Lord Shiva to go north-west and do penance.
