The Main deity of Tiruvidanthai is Varaha Swamy. Galava Maharishi had 360 daughters and was worried as to how he would single handedly take care of his daughters and get them married. He was advised by rishis to worship Varaha swamy in Tiruvidanthai.
After Galava Maharishi worshipped here, Mahavishnu himself took the form of a young handsome man and approached him in order marry his daughter. Galava Maharishi agreed and conducted the marriage ceremony of his daughter with the man. Mahavishnu assumed the form of young man everyday and married all his daughters individually. Since the Marraige ceremony of Mahavishnu with the daughters was held for 360 days, the Perumal is said to be Nithya Kalyana Perumal.
All the 360 daughters finally merged into Akilavalli who is a form of Mahalakshmi seated on top of Varaha swamy on the left side. 'Tiru' refers to Mahalakshmi, 'Ida' refers to left side and Vendai finally merged as Tiru-Ida-Vendhai. This word colloquially got changed as Tiruvidanthai and refers to mahalakshmi devi seted on the Left Thigh of Varaha Swamy. Adiseshan and his wife are seen below Varaha swamy's feet.
The first of the 360 daughters was known as Komalavalli and is housed as a separate shrine outside the Varaha swamy shrine.
Worshipping the Lord here solves marraige problems and ensures early and happy marriage. The Temple authorities also perform marraige ceremony for the Nithya Kalyana Utsava Murthy on request on weekdays. They also perform Homam on request.
Devotees wishing early marraige offer one Poomalai/Flower garland to god here and wear another poomalai to perform pradakshina around the Temple 9 times. They take the poomalai and keep it at home safely. After marraige they bring the old poomalai and offer a new poomalai to lord and again perform pradakshina around the Temple. As a couple they offer the old malai to the Sthala Vriksham-Punnai Maram at the backside of the Temple.
