 Greatness Of Temple:
  Daksha Samhara festival is celebrated in Tamil Aadi month-July-August.  The fire pit walking event (Pookuzhi) takes place on the fifth day.  A plantain tree personified as Daksha is sacrificed then.
After this event, next day to cool down the fury of Lord Veerabadra, people use to place betel leaves on the Tiruvasi (the frame around divine idols) and perform pujas.  The wedding festival takes place the next day.  On the last day of the festival, three varieties of nivedhanas with fruits are offered to Lord.
  Temple History:
  Akasharajan ruling this region then was a staunch Lord Vishnu devotee.  He was sad that he had no child.  He began preparations for a Puthrakameshti Yajna to get a child.  While curing the land to set the Yagasala, a box was found under the ground.  The king found a female baby in the box covered by a lotus flower.  As the child was found on the Alar (lotus), she was named Alarmel Mangai.  Lotus is also called Padmam, hence the baby was also called Padmavathi.
Mother Mahalakshmi came down to earth to find Sage Brugu angrily as he tried to hit on the chest of Her Lord Vishnu.  Lord Vishnu also came down as Srinivasa searching for Mother.  He was under the care of His devotee mother Vahuladevi.  Lord Vishnu met Padmavathi in the king’s palace and decided to marry her.  This marriage took place in Narayanavanam.
King Akashrajan prayed to Lord Shiva and Ambica for security to celebrate his daughter Padmavathi’s marriage peacefully.  Lord Shiva sent Veerabadra and Ambica sent Badrakali.  The marriage went off with all gay and merriment.   King Akashrajan made idols of Veerabadra and Badrakali in wedding form and built this temple.  The temple is under the control of Tirupathi Devasthanam.
