as a bride, wearing splendid ornaments.Periyalwar was very happywhen he saw the grand
procession, which came from Shrirangam.
Andal sat in the palanquin. The marriage procession moved to Shrirangam with musicians
playing on varied instruments. It reached Shrirangam. People came from many places to
witness this grandwedding.
Andal stepped down from the palanquin and stood before Shriranganatha. She was thrilled
when she saw her attractive Lord. All watched with bated breath.Themarriage of Andal did
take place! Andal dedicated herself to the feet of Lord Shriranganatha. Her dream came
true. Shriranganatha accepted her joyfully. Everyone realized the greatness of Andal.

with Shriranganatha Himself filled him with joy.
Andal became a Goddess to everybody. She,who had been an ordinary girl,became a deity to
be worshipped. There is a beautiful temple of Andal in Shrivilliputtur. By its side is a
garden. To this day.Andal is worshipped with the flowers of that garden. The garland worn
by Andal the previous day is presented to Vatapatrashayi the next day.
