Temple History : A devotee called Susarma started off on a trip to Tiruppathi praying for child. He rested on the banks of the Cauvery on his pilgrimage. Sage Naradha appeared in his dream and told him to go to a place called “Thirumukkudalore” and there some people would welcome them. Susarma reached to that place. There carpenters welcomed him and took him to a hill where sculpting work was going on. As they were approaching the hill, they saw a bright light from the hill after which a rock broke and Vishnu appeared there. He blessed them with the boon they wished for. Thus Lord Vishnu appeared here. More over in the contest between Aadhishesha and Vayu Bagawan, the Thiruvengada Mountain was scattered and a part of it become a “Thanthondrimalai”.
