The head of Vanneri tharavad was once passing along the area, when he spotted a dilapidated temple. Though the temple was in ruins he felt the divine presence and thought of renovating the temple. But then he forgot about it and continued his journey. On reaching home, he had many misfortunes and the prasna or astrologer told him that the divine presence he felt is now with him and would leave him only if he built a proper temple for it. So he built the Paradevatha Temple where he felt the divine presence.
Paradevatha Temple complex spread over an acre has got sreekovil, pattupura, chuttambalam, nitumpura, sub-shrines and agrasaala. The adisthanam of the sreekovil has ouldings of padukam, jagathi, kumudam, galam and gala-pati.
