Aravindalochanar Perumal Temple (Irattai Tirupati Temple), Tholavillimangalam, Thoothukudi – Legends

Aravindalochanar Perumal Temple (Irattai Tirupati Temple), Tholavillimangalam, Thoothukudi – Legends
As per Legends, a rishi named Athreya Suprabha rishi maintained a yaga Salai. When he was cleaning the yaga Salai, he found a bright equilibrium and a bow. On touching those two, it changed into beautiful men and a woman. They both explained him that they were changed into the tarasu and the bow because of the poorvajenma sabham; His touch gave them both sabhavimocchan and got Paramapadha Mukthi. Since, this sthalam is named as “Thulam Vil Mangalam” and as the years passed the name changed to “Tholai villi Mangalam”.
