Thanthondrimalai in the Legends of Literature
There are many theories and stories on the name ‘Thanthondri’. It is believed that this hillock has formed itself as a ‘Suyambu’ and some others say that it was found by the most adherent devotees of the Lord. There was a king named ‘Thaamaan Thondrikon’ who ruled over this region with his residence at this hillock. This is evident from the legendary poem ‘Puranaanuru’ (Puranaanuru 399:30-34). A few say that this place would have been named after him.
Once in Thirupatrkadal, Lord Thirumal (Lord Vishnu) was conversing with his Lord Thirumagal (Lord Lakshmi). At that time Adhisheshan (God of Snakes) was guarding the entrance. At that time the Vayubaghavan (God of Wind) wanted to seek the blessings of the Lord. Adhisheshan did not permit Vayubhagavan to see Lord Thirumal. There started a debate between them on who is the strongest and the powerful. At that time, Lord Thirumal came out and wanted to solve the problem. So he gave them a task to accomplish. The task is Lord Adhiseshan should hold Thiruvenkatamalai (Venkatachalam) with his body. The task of Vayudevan is to use all its power to take the hill out of the clutches of Adhisheshan. Adhisheshan held the hill firmly. But Vayubhagavan could not succeed in his attempt. So he was furious. He used all his power and transformed into a great cyclone and that broke the hill and it was thrown into pieces in all directions. One such piece is the hillock of Thanthondrimalai. This hillock has got the holiness of the Thiruvenkadamalai. All other pieces that were thrown out would also possess this holiness. Only because of this, this temple is called as the ‘Then Thirupathi’.
Once upon a time, there was an Archagar who performed the pujas regularly. Once his relative passed away and he sent his son who was a small boy to perform the puja. There is a custom that the Lord is decorated with the life size garland (Nilai malai). On that day a devotee came there with the Nilai malai. That small boy is so short that he could not decorate the Lord with that garland. So he cried and prayed the Lord to bend a little (Venkataramana Devudu, please bend a little). Lord Perumal also bent for his convenience. Then the Archaga’s son happily decorated the Lord with the garland. Thus Lord Perumal has always lends his ears to the prayers offered by his devotees. Only because of this the number of devotees has been improving day by day
