It is believed that this temple was consecrated by a Brahmin who happened to recognize Devi who had reached the shore. The souls of the brahmin and the maiden who is said to have fallen in love with Brahmin have been consecrated in small shrines inside the temple. The devi 'Kalichu' (played)'kulathil vannu'. Hence the name Kanichukulangara.
