The Sthala Puranam relates that the temple was built by a Chera king from Chembium. It is said that a hunter dug the ground for pulling out a root of "Valli" (tapiaco). He was surprised to find blood bursting out of the root and manifesting itself as a Sivalinga endowed with a pair of wings. The awe-struck hunter prostrated before the divine manifestation and prayed for grace.

Adding to its glory is the fact that, devotee Markandeya worshiped the linga Enshrined here. This temple faces the west. The last kumbabhishekam was performed during 1990.
