History - Thirukkulanthai

This is one among the Azhwar Nava Tirupathi. As per the stahala purana, Kamalavathi daughter of Vedasaran, Meditated on the Lord intending to marry only Him. Pleased with her efforts, The Lord embraced her and then married her. Hence this place is also Balika vanam. The Lord slayed the demon Amsarajan in a Mayayuddha at Balikavanam and danced over him and took the name Mayakoothan (Koothu - Folk Dance) at the request of the Devas.
