UPPILIAPPAN KOIL

The Lord said: "MaharshI, I appreciate your devotion very much. I am going to be your son-in-law. You should give your daughter Bhoomi Devi to me in marriage now. As your daughter is very young, she may not know to cook properly with salt. What sheprepares without salt will be tasty for me. You, the greatest devotee, please give your daughter in marriage to me and obtain whatever bons you desire".

Hearing this, Markandeya joyfully said: "My life's mission has been fulfilled. What more than your darsan, shall I request? However, since you desire, I shall request three things, viz., (1) marrying my daughter, you should always stay here at this place; (2) this, forest should be known after me; (3) things prepared without salt, should be tasty even for your devotees, Give me these three requests and give me salvation".

God granted the requests. "As I have come' from Vinnulakam (Vaikuntham) to this place, as I like it, this place will be known as Tiruvinnagaram. As yourself and Tulasi prayed for me here, this will  be known as Markandeya Kshetram. and Tulasivanam. Whoever stays here for a short while also gets whatever he desires.
