The antiquity and fame of this Narasimha temple is evident from the reference in "Vishnuvilasam", a rare poetic composition by Kunchan Nambiar's nephew, Ramapanivadan* and its mention in "Kokila Sandesam" by the versatile scholar, Udhanda Sastrigal. The village derived its name from this temple. The "Prathishta" is beleived to have been done by Rishi Jayanthan and the Vedic God Vayu. The renowned /sanskrit scholar Sabdikathilakan Chendamangalam  
Ayya Sasthrigal has read Bhagavatha daily here for many years.
*(In K.K.Raja's 'Contribution of Kerala to Sanskrit Literature' it is mentioned that Ramapanivadan could be Kunchan Nambiar's uncle - courtsey Narendran)
