According to the legends, Nallur Kartha, one of the Nair nobles of Perumbavoor built the Perumbavoor Shree Dharma Sastha Temple. Nallur Kartha once engaged two boys as his servants and they were given raw rice as wages every day. Every day after their work the boys took raw rice and some Thulasi (sweet basil) leaves from there. Once Kartha became suspicious about the action of the boys and followed them. Kartha saw the boys standing near a Palmyra tree and then they disappeared. Nallur Kartha had a dream that night in which Lord Ayyappa appeared and informed him that it was He who worked as his servant and the other boy is His friend. Lord asked Nallur Kartha to construct a temple for Him and His friend for which Nallur Kartha would get sufficient money for the construction of the temple from the beneath of Palmyra tree. On looking, Kartha found a bag full of gold coins and he built the temple using that money.

The idol of Lord Ayyappa here is in a unique pose. Lord sits on a sila-peetham with right leg folded in upright pose with right foot firmly fixed to the peetha. The left leg is folded and kept slantingly in such a way that its toes come in front of the right foot. The right hand is also kept in a slanting pose over the right knee with th efolded palm holding a weapon, assumed to be a churika or sword. The left arm is also slanting and the palm is kept at the rear of the peetham. On the whole, the idol gives the impression that the Lord is ready for the war and is about to start.
