What is the history of the temple?

The story on the evolution of Mannarasala Nagaraja Temple as the supreme place of worship of the serpent Gods is associated with Parasurama, the creator of Kerala. Legend has it that the first priestess of Mannarasala gave birth to a five-headed snake, which is believed to reside in the ancestral house to safeguard the family. Though a land area has formed, the place remains as a piece of land with high concentration of salt, which prompted the people to leave the place in hurry. Saddened by this, Parasuraman decided to start a penance in order to please lord Siva, who ordered him to worship Nagaraja. After another rigorous penance, finally Parasurama became able to satisfy Nagaraja who blessed him with a desalinated land and also granted the eternal presence in Kerala. Thus as per the wish of Parasurama, Nagaraja decided to reside at a place selected by Parasurama. The selected place – Thirthasthala (Hall of Pilgrimage) was filled with Mandara trees, over the years gained the name of ‘Mannarasala’.. Later Parasurama brought knowledgeable personalities from other places and installed other deities.The vault in which Nagaraja is believed to be staying is seen with utmost respect by the members of the household.
