Periyazhwar was the foster father of Andal, the only female azhwars.The works of Periyazhwar contributed to the philosophical and theological ideas of Vaishnavism. His contributions are Thirupallandu and Periya Azhwar thirumozhi among the 4000 stanzas in the Nalayira Divya Prabandam.
The Prabandha sings the praise of Narayana (or Vishnu) and his many forms. The Alvars sung these songs at various sacred shrines. These shrines are known as the Divya Desams.The Tamil Vaishnavites are also known as Ubhaya Vedanti(those that follow both vedas). In many temples, Srirangam, for example, the chanting of the Divya Prabhandham forms a major part of the daily service. Prominent among the 4,000 verses are the 1,100+ verses known as the ThiruVaaymozhi, composed by Nammalvar (Kaari Maaran, Sadagopan of Thiruk Kurugoor).The Tiruvaymoli ("words of the sacred mouth") is one of the Divya Prabandham, an important liturgical compilation of the Tamil Alvar Bhaktas, collected in the 9th century by Nammalvar. The author self-identifies as a lovelorn Gopi pining for Krishna.

Vishnuchittar composed a couplet called Thirup-Palandu translating to "Long live for many years, Long live for many years for Hundreds of thousands of years!" to God. This is a very important prayer in Srivaishnava tatvam. Vishnuchittar composed some pasurams in the 4000 Divya Prabhandham called Perialvar Tirumozhi where he explores a devotee's love for God through the metaphor of Yashoda's motherly love for Krishna. He was the adopted father of Kodhai or Andal, the only woman alvar.

Andal was found in the gardens of Periazhwar (Vishnuchittar) under the basil plant. She was always Krishna conscious from her childhood days and grew up listening to Periazhwar’s Krishnaleela. She was also know as Kothai (Godha). She used to get up early in the morning with periazhwar and would pluck flowers and make garland.
Andal thought if she can be an ideal bride for lord and wore the garland made for god and would look her reflection in the well. As days passed god lord revealed himself in the well along with Andal and disappeared before periazhwar arrived. One day the lord made sure that periazhwar notice this and periazhwar was disheartened at this sight and informed Andal not to repeat this again and he didn’t send the garland to temple.
Lord appeared in Periazwar dream and declared that he liked only the garland worn by Andal. From this day onwards Andal is called as Shudikudutha Nacchiyar. As days passed Andal loved Krishna like gopi’s and started Kathyayini Vrata in Marghazhi, same as Gopi’s in Dwapara Yuga.
Each of the days Andal sang in praise of Krishna collectively known as Thiruppavai. Andal has sang these songs at her 5th year. Periazhar being her guru it is no surprise that Andal was able to in her childhood days.
Out of these places, Alwars, have sung on the Perumal and there are totally 108 Sthalams where Alwars have done Mangalasasanam on the Perumal. These 108 places are called as "Divyadesams".
The 108 Divya Desams or Tirupatis are sacred places were sung upon by Azhwars, the ultimate devotees of Narayana. There are 106 on the Indian Subcontinent (105 in India and 1 in Nepal). The remaining two, Tirupparkadal and Srivaikuntam, can be accessed only when one leaves this world. The Tirupparkadal is the "ocean of milk" and the Srivaikuntam is the domain where LORD NARAYANA presides.
