Srivilliputhur Aandal Temple is in Srivilliputhur, a town in Virudhunagar district in the South Indian state of Tamilnadu, is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. It is located 74 km from Madurai. Constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture, the temple is glorified in the Divya Pranbandha, the early medieval Tamil canon of the Azhwar saints from the 6th–9th centuries AD. It is one of the 108 Divyadesam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshiped as Vadapathrasayi and his consort Lakshmi as Aandal. It is believed to be the birthplace of two of the Azhwars, namely Periazhwar and his foster daughter Aandal.


The temple is associated with the life of Aandal, who was found under a Tulsi plant in the garden inside the temple by Periazhwar. She is believed to have worn the garland before dedicating it to the presiding deity of the temple. Periazhwar, who later found it, was highly upset and stopped the practice. It is believed Vishnu appeared in his dream and asked him to dedicate the garland worn by Aandal to him daily, which is a practice followed during the modern times. It is also believed that Ranganatha of Srirangam Ramanathaswamy temple married Aandal, who later merged with him.


The temple has two divisions the one of Aandal located on the Southwest and the second one of Vadapathrasayi on the Northeast direction. A granite wall surrounds the temple, enclosing all its shrines, the garden where Aandal is believed to have been born and two of its three bodies of water. The Vijayanagar and Nayak kings commissioned paintings on the walls of the shrine of temple, some of which are still present.
