Appan Koil @ Thiruvengadaththappan Koil is the capital of Thiruvazhuthi Valanadu . the ruling samrat of Swamy Karimara piran (father of Sri Nammazhwar) , after Swamy Nammazhwar getting moksham sri Karimarapiran and Udayanangai thayar enterd into the lotus feet of Thiruvengadaththappan, from the day onwards the perumal who is in the Appan Koil is called as Appan as a short, because this perumal is considerd as Azhwar’s parents. So each and every year 8th day of avathara utsavam Azhwar comes to this stalam for getting blessing from parents and Azhwar undergoes thirumanjanam, and showing his thavazhntha thirukolam to his parents. So this utsavam is one of the very precious and special event of Azhwar’s avathara utsavam .
