Kanthadai Thozhappar was the grandson of Mudaliandan. Thozhappar installed the Archaswaroopam (Idol) of Choodikodutha Nachiyar (Andal) and he also conducted the Thirukalyana utsavam for Kanchi Devaperumal with Andal Naachiyaar. Inturn, Devaperumal as a measure of showing his gratitude towards Thozhappar, decided to reside in Thozhappar's thirumaaligai. He also expressed his desire in Thozhappar's dream and as one of his six forms (Shatberam), came to Thozhappar's thirumaaligai. Thozhappar, on seeing the grace of the Lord became very happy and named him 'Aahuya Rakshaka Hari' (Azhaithu Vaazhvitha Perumal).
