    Legend of Birth

    In her previous birth, Valli, along with her sister Deivayani were the daughters of Lord VishnuVishnuVishnu
    Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
    (one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus, also known as the Preserver) and both wanted to marry Murgan. They performed strict penance and finally attained a boon of marrying Murgan in their next birth.

    There was a king named Nambi Rajan who was the Chief of the tribe named Kuravar living in Thiruthani. He along with his wife wanted a girl child for very long. One day they came across a baby in a forest and they were happy to adopt her. They named her Valli and she grew up as the princess of the tribe.

    From a very early age, NaradaNaradaNarada
    Narada, also popularly known as Narada Muni, is a great Vedic sage and is one of the most significant and iconic characters of the Hindus. 
    Muni (a sage known for his intelligence and manipulation skills) narrated stories about Murgan to Valli and she fell in love with his martial prowess and handsome features. She took a vow of never laying her eyes on any other man and marrying only the God of the mountain, Murgan.

    Valli’s Love for Murgan

    According to a ritual, Valli was sent to a field of growing millet to protect it from birds and animals. Meanwhile Narad Muni told Murgan about the girl who was fully devoted to him. Murgan wanted to test her love and thus one day he came on earth to meet Valli in a very handsome appearance. But Valli was not at all moved. Her heart was dedicated to the love and fervent devotion of Murgan. He sometimes took a form of a tree and sometimes of an old man, not to be seen by the army of the Chief.

    Unable to woo Valli, Murgan sought help from his brother GaneshaGaneshaGanesha
    The guardian deity of Hindus, also known as the Ganapati (The God of all groups) is the son of Lord Shiva ...
    (Remover of Obstacles). He took a form of a wild elephant and scared Valli. Valli in exchange for her life agreed to marry an old man who was none other than Murgan in disguise. As soon as she accepted the proposal, Murgan showed her his real self and then they consummated their love for each other.

    Vanni Malai

    The place where the couple romanced came to be known as Valli Malai which was filled with greenery and pools of fresh water. Valli and Murgan played hide-and-seek with each other and continued cherishing their love. The twelve year old Valli was perfect for a Murgan who always remains Kumara (young).

    Valli’s father and his army unable to recognize Murgan, tried to kill him by shooting arrows but none of them touched him, rather the army fell lifeless. Murgan told Valli that as soon as she touches their bodies, they all will come back to life. After coming back from the dead, they realized the worth of Murgan and married Valli to him.

    Valli Malai Festival

    In many places in South India, especially Tamil Nadu, Valli Malai festival is celebrated where the married women are offered mangal sutra (an auspicious thread) and kumkum (red vermilion) by their husbands as the sign of their happy marriage and their love.
