The name Thiruthangal has a fascinating background. It is here Mother Mahalakshmi performed penance to relieve the people from Banasura and urged the Lord to control him. The Lord responded to the penance of Mahalakshmi. Sri in Tamil means Thiru. Thangal in Tamil means staying. Thus came the name Thiru-Thangal. Banasura also prayed to Lord to accept his daughter Usha in marriage to his grandson Aniruddha. The Lord blessed everybody seeking his grace.
