Temple History:

    When the milk ocean was churned, after the appearance of the Karpaga Tree and Kamadenu, Mother Mahalakshmi appeared finally. Enticed by the handsomeness of Perumal, She decided to have His hand in wedding, came to this place and began Her penance to realize the wish. Knowing Her mind, Lord Vishnu asked Vishwakseana to fix a Muhurt, the auspicious day for the wedding. He then granted darshan to Mother. The wedding took place with all divine pomp and splendour in the presence of all Devas ? Mupathu Mukkodi-90 crore in number. As Lord Perumal came out of the milk ocean for Mother Mahalakshmi, He is praised as Perum Pura Kadal ? Kadal in Tamil means ocean. The place is also praised as Lakshmi Vanam as Mother performed penance here and as Krishna Mangala Kshetra as the divine wedding took place here
