Greatness Of Temple:

   This sacred land is revered next to Badarikashrama as Lord Perumal taught the Tirumantra to Azhwar. The place is also revered as Lakshmi Narasimha Kshetra as Lord Perumal graces here along with Mother Mahalakshmi. The devotee has the advantage of worshipping five Narasimha Kshetras in Tiruvali. Mother Mahalakshmi gave pressure to Perumal to grant darshan to Saint Tirumangai Azhwar. As planned, Mahalakshmi was born as daughter of Sage Poorna Mahrshi and had the hands of Perumal in wedding. When they were passing through Devarajapuram, Tirumangai Azhwar waylaid them. Perumal taught the Ashtakshara Mantra to Azhwar and granted darshan.

Temple History:

    Perumal took the Narasimha Avtar to destroy demon Hiranya. His fury could not be softened by anyone. Devas and Rishis were afraid that Lord?s fury would destroy the whole universe and begged the help of Mother Mahalakshmi. She came and sat on Lord?s lap. Lord embraced (Aalinganam in Sanskrit) hence the place was named Aalingana Puram ? Tiruvali. Tiru in Tamil means Mother Mahalakshmi.
