This temple is situated South of ThiruThanka and about ½ km West of Ashtabhujam temple.

Lord Vishnu who took the Narasimha Avataaram to kill Hiranya took another form of Narasimha at this place and went behind a group of asuras who were causing misery to people. The scared asuras ran away and were not to be found.

Happy at keeping the Asuras away from this place, Lord Narasimha decided to stay put at this place so he could protect the people from evil force at all times.

Vel signifies desire and since the Lord chose to reside at this place out of his own desire, this place came to called ‘Thiru Velukkai’.

PeyAzhvaar and Thirumangai have sung praise of the Lord.
