Goddess Devaiyanai is the daughter of God Indra, who assigned his white elephant Airavata or Airavatham, to take care of the baby. The elephant brought up the girl child with care and affection, and therefore she was named Deivayanai (Tamil-the divine one brought by the elephant).
The Goddess in her previous birth was Amritavalli, the daughter of Maha Vishnu. She along with her sibling Sundaravalli, undertook severe penance to become the consort of Lord Murugan. The Lord pleased by their devotion, appeared before them and gave the boon of marriage in their next birth.
Lord Murugan restored the Kingdom of Heaven to Lord Indra, and gifted
the discus to Lord Vishnu. Indra requested Him to marry his daughter
Deivayanai. Murugan consented and the wedding took place in a celestial
manner at Thirupparamkunram Murugan Temple, which is also one of the Arupadaiveedu. The wedding is celebrated as the festival of Panguni Uthram in South India.
