This sthala perumal gave his prathyaksham for Indiran, Vaayu bhagavan and Varuna bhagavan. To live, we need to inhale the air and the air is Vaayu bhagavan and other necessary thing is water and it is varunan and the green land is Indiran. By giving the prathyaksham to these three, Emperumaan equalises them and explains to the the world how important and essential they are.

Kumudham means Dharbai Pul (Dharbai is one kind of Grass). Since, in this sthalam, the Yaagam was done, this sthala Vimaanam is called "Kumudha Vimaanam".

Joining two Azhwar tirupathi sthalams, and it is considered to be a single divyadesam, this is called as "Twin Tirupathi".
Both these two sthalams are found inside a small village where there is only small amount of human live.

In this sthalam, a munivar (rishi) named "Athreya Suprabha rishi", started and maintained a yaaga saali (place where yaagam is done). When he was cleaning the yaaga salai, he found out a bright Tarasu (equilibrium measuring instrument) and Bow. On touching those two, it Changed into a beautiful men and a women. They both explained him that they were changed into the tarasu and the bow because of the sabham, given by Kuberan it will end only if they are touched by Suprabha rishi. And after explaining this, they both got sabha vimocchan and got paramapadha mukthi.
