The specialty of this sthalam is the thaayar Periya Pirattiyar Lakshmi devi are in a separate sannadhi and it is one of the specialty among the Malayala Naatu Divyadesam.

பிராட்டி, லக்ஷ்மி தேவி and கஜேந்திரன் (the elephant) worshipped the perumal and dedicated him with the Lotus flowers from the Lake. But, Lakshmi devi was jealous and angry on the Gajendran since he also dedicate the flowers to his perumal, who thinks that the perumal is only for him. But, perumal who can know all about this, wanted to make clear to his wife, Lakshmi devi that she is wrong.

Lakshmi devi daily plucked, all the flowers from the pond before its being plucked by Gajendran, the elephant. Seeing the action of Lakshmi piratti, Gajendran felt sad and worried for it.

It cried for this and prayed to the perumal. Hearing the voice of Gajendran, the perumal ordered Lakshmi piratti not to dedicate the flowers that is plucked from the pond and instead she has to sit beside him and should accept the flowers that's being dedicated by Gajendran. Accepting the words of the perumal, Lakshmi piratti seated along with the Naavaay perumal and accepted the flowers of Gajendran.

Since, thaayar, Lakshmi piratti doesn't want Gajendran to dedicate the Lotus flowers (Malar), the thaayar is named as "Malar Mangai Naachiyaar".
