The place, where the temple presently stands, derived its name from the direction that the river Achankovil takes as its flows along. It flows westwards initially and circumvents the temple and moves in an East ward direction.

This unique direction of the flow of the river has given the place the name " Valanchuzykara". The other side of the river, however, came to be known as " Marukara". And, with each passing year the " Karas" surrounding the temple increased in numbers.

From two karas initially, the temple earned the respect and adulation of more karas to take the total number to 14. With the support of these 14 karas, the temple gradually acquired fame and respect and is presently one of the most renowned temples in Kerala.

Annadanam will be done on malayalam calnder star day 'Bharani' of every month. Contact Temple Office forPooja and Vazhipadu Details.
