According to the legends, it is believed that the temple of Sri Varaha Moorthy was built by Sage Parashurama nearly 4000 years ago and it is considered as the prime temple of Kerala. According to the legends,Parashurama donated all that he had won to Kashyap after his victory over the Kshatriyas. He then created a piece of land to carry out his meditation, which was Kerala. Seeing Paeasurama's devotion, Lord Maha Vishnu appeared and asked him to worship Lord Vishnu in Varaha incarnation. It is believed that Parasurama installed Sri Varaha Moorthy Temple following this.
The Palakkad district where the temple is situated, has mainly paddy cultivation as the main occupation of the people. The district is called the 'Rice Bowl' of Kerala. The social and cultural customs of the people are, therefore, one way or other, connected with paddy cultivation. They believe that the Goddesses of 'Kavu' (temple) protect them in their 'Thattakam' (meaning the area where they live, surrounds the 'Kavu'). The people make offerings to the Goddesses in their 'Thattakam' in the form agricultural produces having bearing on the seasonal agriculture.
