It is commonly said that Bhoodevi Andal's independent picture or photo should not be kept and worshipped in the house. It is not a opinion based. Are there any puranical evidences pertaining to this?

    Andal was born a long time after the writing of the Puranas. So, there will not be any Puranical evidences for not Keelung a picture of Andal... – user15963 Aug 21 '18 at 20:44
  • When you ask such questions, you should also post the concerned photo. – Pinakin Oct 16 '18 at 8:20

The Gurupamparai Prabhavam of Pinpazhagiya Perumal Jeeyar describes how Andal was found in a Tulasi garden which was maintained by Perialwar on Adi-Puram. It goes on to state that her birth was at the beginning of Kaliyuga.

Her sacred compositions, Nachiyar Thirumozhi and Thiruppavai have been included by Nathamunigal in the Nalayira Divyaprabandam.

A picture of Andal is kept in every Sri Vaishnava home, much in the way Meenakshi is kept in the home of Saivans.
