TIRUVADANTAI

When all the 360 girls vanished in this manner, the episode reached Maharshi Kalava and bewildered and agitated his mind. He wanted to know from God Himself the whereabouts of his daughters and sons-in-law.

When the Sage entered the, sanctum sanctorum of the temple with the object of knowing from the Lord's mouth the where abouts of his daughters, Lord Vishnu appeared before him as Varaha, the Boar, holding all the 360 daughters on lap. Lord Varahaswami embraced all the 360 daughters of Maharshi with his left hand and pressed all the 360 souls into single soul of Lakshmi, His consort,making her sit on his raised thigh. The merging of the souls of his daughters with that ofGoddess Lakshmi enlightened the Sage. The Sage was greatly elated that Goddess Lakshmi considered him fit enough to be her father.As the marriage episode continued day after day for the 360 days of the year, the presiding deity was fondly named
Nityakalyanaswami (Nitya means daily, Kalyana means marriage). Gradually the place gained in importance. Tirumangai Azhwar visited the place and sang in praise of the Lord.
