Tiruvempavai (also known as Thiruvembavai) is a part of Thiruvasagam. Manikavasagar recited Thiruvempavai praising Lord Shiva. In these verses, the saint visualizes himself as a female and sings in praise of the Lord in the early hours of Margazhi. Thiruvempavai was composed in the temple town of Thiruvannamalai.

Thiruvempavai is recited during the Pavai Nombu. Pavai nombu is observed by unmarried girls to get their desired husbands. Girls wake up early in the morning go to the ponds and rivers for bathing and then worship Pavai (woman goddess). Then go to the shiva temple and sing Tiruvempavai.
