The Temple was established as a temporary structure in 1772 AD, by Kasaragod Pattanashetty Family. A permanent structure was built and Punarprathistha was carried out in early 1799 A.D. Arrangements were also made for permanent sevas at the temple and the management was left to the priests. Due to internal conflicts among priests, the community took over the management in 1858. But, due to theft of the diety in 1897-98 the temple was closed. It was re-established and the present idols of Shri Venkatramana & Padmavati were consecrated by HH Srimad Varadendra Thirtha Swamiji in 1905. In 1910 the annual Bhajana Saptaha was started.

New Poojaris were appointed in 1913. The temple again got into difficulties due to fight amongst priests who claimed it as their property in 1913. The legal battle was waged upto 1930 when it was settled in favour of the community. After a fire in 1921 part of the temple was renovated. In 1935 Sukratheendra Mandir was built along with a community kitchen. A temple tank was also completed. The Venkatesha Mandir was built in 1946. In April 1952 it was decided to rectify the defects in the temple and re-consecrate the five idols of the temple at the Holy hands of Srimat Sudheendra Thirtha Swamiji. The re-consecration took place on 29th March, 1954. In 1961 AD, the Golden jubilee of Sankeerthana Saptaha was celebrated and blessed by Srimat Sudhindra Tirtha Swamiji. A special feat of Shri Rama Nama Likhita Japayajna was held in connection with the golden jubilee in which the community members has transcribed Sri Rama Jay Rama Jay Jay Rama: 52 crore times on paper. In 1993, complete Renovation and Punarprathistha was performed by Srimat Raghavendra Tirtha Swamiji.
