Temple History : Nanga Chola king, a devotee of Lord Ranganathar, was ruling over this region. Having no children, he worshipped to the Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu to fulfil his devotee’s wish have sent Maha Lakshmi (the Goddess of prosperity & his consort) as the daughter to the king. One day, while hunting, the king saw a baby lying on a lotus in a pond. Believing to be the gift of God, he christened her Kamala valli (kamalam - lotus) and brought her up. One day while she was playing with her friends in a garden, she happened to see Lord Ranganathar riding a horse. The Lord appeared in the dream of the king asked Kamalavalli to be married to him. The king took her to Srirangam, where is believed to have united with Lord Ranganathar. Soon the king raised a dedicated temple for kamala valli at Woraiyur.
