The temple is one of the 108 Kshetras of Lord Shiva that were consecrated by Sri Parshurama, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. When the Alangadu Dynasty was split in two, Kothakulangara, located north of Angamali, was designated capital. In 1762, the reign of Zamorin was dominated by the leaders of Travancore. As a result, Cochin and Alagangal merged with the kingdom of Travancore. Later, when the kingdom of Travancore was dissolved, the administration of the Chirackal Temple was placed under Travancore Devaswom’s board of directors.
