 Nallathambi was her elder brother hailing from an agricultural family noted for their high qualities.  Nallathangal was married to one Kasirajan of Madurai.  Nallthangal became mother of seven children.  Madurai was then under severe famine.  She had to come to Vatrayiruppu seeking the help of brother Nallathambi.  He was not available in the house then.  His wife ignored her and did not receive her.  She only gave them an old earthern pot, wet woods and a cup unfit for use.  However, she was able to light the oven with her power of chastity, cooked food and managed hunger.  Yet, unable to manage the situation, she took the extreme decision and committed suicide by falling into a well with all her children.
 
On his return, Nallathambi came to know the tragic events, killed his wife for her cruelty and stabbed himself fatally.  Nallthangal was a devout woman.  Lord and Mother appeared before the brother and sister and blessed them with life again.  Nallathangal begged God to have them at Their feet and not return them to earth.  The Lord said that the time will come soon and asked her to protect people till then.
 
This temple is kept open continuously from early morning to evening without a break for Lord’s Darshan for the devotees. According to the local legends, the goddess Nallathangal lived here in this land during the ancient times and still blesses the people living in this earth with her divine power attained through chastity and goodness.
 
It is to be noted that Vatrayiruppu is blessed with a perennial water sources named Arjuna River that makes the land fertile green fields in the region of Srivilliputhur Taluk. This place is referred as “Kutti Malayalam” because of its lush greenery that resembles like Kerala.
 
The temple was built for both sister and the brother.  The children are also here in the form of idols. Seeking child boon and welfare of children, devotees place cradles made of lime before the Goddess and Children shrine in the temple.   Realizing their wishes, devotees offer tonsuring and name the children Nallathangal and Nallthambi.
