• This beautifully crafted Golu bommai captures the essence of this profound and enlightening form of Lord Vishnu.

• This Golu Bommai includes the dolls of Lord Uppilliyappan, Bhudevi, and Markendeyan. 
• Uppiliappan Temple, also known as Thiruvinnagar Venkatachalapathy Temple, is a temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located near Thirunageswaram, a village in the outskirts of Kumbakonam in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. 
• The presiding deity in this temple, Lord Uppiliappan Perumal, stands up to 8 feet tall in the center. Below him, Bhoomidevi faces north in a kneeling posture, while Markandeya Maharishi, who has the boon of retaining his age as 16 forever, has the position of marrying his daughter to the Lord. 
• The history of the temple is mentioned in the Brahmanda Purana, one of the eighteen famed Hindu scriptures. Per Hindu legend, Tulasi once did penance to attain closeness to Vishnu. Vishnu responded that his consort Lakshmi would appear under Tulasi's lap in Tiruvinnagaram. Tulasi appeared in the place where the temple is located. This is mentioned in the 53rd verse of Nammazhwaar in Thiruviruththam. Markandeya Maharishi worshipped Vishnu and desired that Lakshmi should appear as his daughter and Vishnu should become his son-in-law. Lakshmi appeared as a baby under the already incarnated tulasi plant. Markandeya felt Lakshmi's presence in the form of the baby and realized that part of his desire had been fulfilled. When the young girl reached adolescence, on the panguni month of Shravana, Vishnu appeared as an old man and asked for the hand of Markandeya's daughter in marriage. Markandeya replied, ""You are very ripe and old, my daughter is too young, and she does not even know how to cook with proper salt contents"", to which the old man replied, ""If your daughter must cook without salt, then I will still take it as my best food, but I will not leave from here without marrying her"". Markandeya sought Vishnu's help and then realized, using his penance, that the old man was Vishnu himself. When he opened his eyes, Vishnu appeared in front of him with a conch and chakram, as in Vaikundam. Markandeya offered his daughter's hand in marriage. Per the legend, the temple's Neyvethiyam (food offering) is always prepared without salt. The name Oppiliappan (uppu illa appan) is a result of this legend.
