The presiding deity of this temple is Lord Ayyappa. This temple is also known as 'Memballikkavu'. There is a belief about the formation of this temple. Once Lord Ayyappa was in the mission of removing the robbers in that area. On the way , Ayyappa took rest on a rock. At that time one of the 'Yatheendran' saw it and realized that the rock had got a power. He suddenly called a 'Brahmin' boy near the place and made a 'pooja' there. That Brahmin boy went home and told everything to the family members.Thus they made the temple there. This family is known as 'Idayaranmula' Mana.
