Temple History :  Devas and Asuras churned Thirupparkadal and obtained the Nector. Vishnu deceived asuras and placed it in a Kalasa. When the Kalasa was opened again, the Nectar (Amirdham) was in the form of Sivalingam. Vishnu understood that this was due to the absence of the grace of Parvathy. He removed the ornaments on his bosom and worhsipped them considering them Parvathy. Ambal appeared then with the name of Abirami and offered Her grace for obtaining Amirdham. Vishnu shared the Amirdha among the Devas. An asura joined the Devas in the disguise of a Deva and drank the amirdham. He attained immortality and the strength of Devas. Vishnu cut him into two. He did not lose his life as he was immortal. The cut pieces of his body became Ragu and Kedhu and joined the Navagraha Mandala. Vishnu, who is responsible for the appearance of Abirami Ammai and also for getting Amirdham for Devas, is gracing as Amirdha Narayana Perumal at Thirukkadaiyur along with Sri Devi and Bhoo Devi. That the expectant women are blessed with good husbands if they offer worship to Amirdhavalli Thayar is a popular belief.
