UPPILIAPPAN KOIL

Vishnu would come and stay there after
marriage. Whoever worships Vishnu with Tulasi petals would get wealth. Whoever resides in a Tulasi grove would attain liberation. As Vishnu would be staying in this forest for a long time, it would be known as Tiruvirmagararn (the holy city of heaven). When such greatness awaited Tulasi, she should not feel unhappy. Happy at these consoling words, 'Tulasi came and took her abode south of the Kaveri river about four miles from Kumbakonam.

Sage Mrikandu got a son named Markandeya. Markandeya started on pilgrimage after attaining the boon of immortality. In the course of his pilgrimage he came to, this place where Tulasi had taken her abode as a plant. The natural beauty of this place attracted him very much. He thought it to be the suitable place for commencing his penance. He got a desire to have Bhoomi Devi as his daughter and Vishnu as his son-in-law.
