Prominence of the shrine : There are other Perumal temples around Tiruvali – Kurayalur Ukkira Narasimhan, Mangaimadam Veera  Narasimhan, Tirunagari Yoga Narasimhan and one more Lord Narasimha called Hiranya Narasimhan.  The Vimana-tower above the  Sanctum Sanctorum is known as Ashtakshara Vimana.  Saint Tirumangai Azhwar had the Darshan of Lord Perumal in this place.  This  sacred land is revered next to Badarikashrama as Lord Perumal taught the Tirumantra to Azhwar.  The place is also revered as Lakshmi  Narasimha Kshetra as Lord Perumal graces here along with Mother Mahalakshmi.  The devotee has the advantage of worshipping five  Narasimha Kshetras in Thiruvali.  The Mandap where Tirumangai Azhwar intercepted the divine couple still exists here.  This ‘way  laying’ event is celebrated in the temple each year.

Temple History : Perumal took the Narasimha Avtar to destroy demon Hiranya.  His fury could not be softened by anyone. Devas and  Rishis were afraid that Lord’s fury would destroy the whole universe and appealed to Mother Mahalakshmi.  She came and sat on Lord’s  lap.  Lord embraced her (Aalinganam in Sanskrit) hence the place was named Aalingana Puram – Tiruvali.  Tiru in Tamil means Mother  Mahalakshmi.  Tirumangai Azhwar was a chieftain of this place.  So this place is called as Alinadan.  Goddess Lakshmi requested Lord  Perumal to show appearance to Thirumangai Azhwar.  On her request, Lakshmi Devi was born as the daughter of sage, Poorna  Maharishi in Tiruvali who was performing penance.  Goddess Lakshmi was married to Lord Perumal at the age of marriage.  When they  were coming to Devarajapuram near Tiruvali, Tirumangai Azhwar began to rob people on the way to fund his services to Lord and so  Lord Perumal advised the Atshatchara Mantra to Tirumangai Azhwar.  The hall can be found today in the place where Tirumangai  robbed.
