As per local history, Sri Narayana Guru asked the people of the region what they wanted to worship, Goddess Bhadrakali or Annapurneshwari. The people told let they would like to see the murti that is to the liking of Sri Narayana Guru.

Sri Narayana Guru told then let it be Anandavalli. But when the pratishta was performed it turned out to that of Subrahmanya. The shrine was consecrated during Kollavarsham 1063 – 64.

Sri Narayana Guru had then told the gathering that the temple will be a great center of knowledge.

Thaipooyam is of great significance here. Monthly Sashti fasting is an important day.
