  Nammazhwar, in his hymn says that he is eagerly waiting for the moment to have the darshan of the Lotus feet of the handsome Lord in the Tiruvallavazh – Sri Vallaba Kshetra situated in an environment of extreme natural beauty filled with the musical sounds of bees.   The temple is praised thus in the Mangalasasanam of Nammazhwar and also in the hymns of Tirumangai Azhwar.  
     
 Festival:
     
  Aaraatu on Poosa star day in the month of Masi (February-March) with a flag hoisting 10 days earlier is very grandly celebrated in the temples followed by Archanas the next day. Other pujas are not performed on this day.  
     
 Temple's Speciality:
     
  There is no admission to women in this temple as in Aiyappan temple as Lord observes Brammacharya (celibacy) here. The temple has the reputation of being among the 108 Vaishnavite Divya Desas. As the Chest Darshan of Lord is considered very important on Margazhi Tiruvadhirai in December-January and on Chithirai Vishu the first day of the month falling almost on April 14 or a day before or after occasionally in some years, women are admitted to the temple on these days only. It is said that Perumal also as a Brahmmachari stood in the queue to receive the dhan (alms) from Sankara Mangalathu Ammayar. Perumal also asked Ammayar the salted mango she kept to take after completing her fast. She immediately offered it to Perumal in the arecanut leaf. Hence, rice and salted mango on this leaf is offered to Perumal as nivedhana. Sandal Prasad is very famous in Kerala. In this temple, vibhuti-the sacred ash is also offered as Prasad with sandal paste, based on the story that Lord Shiva came to the temple to worship Perumal on the Tiruvadhirai day. Hence, Vibhuti also is added in the Prasad.

 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

We see Garuda Bhagwan in Vishnu temple standing in a worshipping form opposite the Lord.  Here, He is 50 feet tall on a pillar in a flying form covered with gold.  The philosophy is that Sri Garuda Bagwan is ready to carry the Lord to the devotee who prays to him submitting his grievances.  Perumal is facing east in a standing form.  The Vimana – tower above the sanctum sanctorum is called Chaturanga Kola Vimanam.  Kandakarnan and Sankaramangala Ammayar had worshipped here.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

A holy woman respected for her Pathi Bhakti was living in Sankaramangalam village.  She was observing the Ekadasi fasting intensely and used to visit the temple on Dwadasi-next day and was feeding the ascetics in the temple.  A demon, Tolakasuran by name was giving her troubles on her way to the temple.  Ammayar prayed to Perumal for protection.

 

Once, while she was coming to the temple through the forest area, she saw a Brahmmachari fighting ferociously.  The sound of the fight stopped after a while.  Ammayar reached the temple and saw a Brahmmachari youth resembling the one she saw in the forest and understood that Lord Himself came to protect her.

 

Brahmmacharis do not wear the upper cloth-Angavastram.  There is no angavastram for Perumal in the temple.  While we see seek the feet of Perumal for darshan, here devotees seek the chest darshan of Perumal, the abode of Sri Mahalakshmi (Tiru).  Hence, Perumal is called Tiru Vazh Marban – Lakshmi residing in the chest of Perumal.
