The sanctum sanctorum is in the midst of a lotus pool. According to legends, Thampuran of Paravur was a great devotee of Goddess Mookambika.

He used to visit the Kollur temple in Mangalore every year to pay homage to the goddess. When he became old, his health worsened and he could no longer undertake the long journey to Kollur. The goddess appeared to the sad devotee in a dream and ordered him to build her idol near his palace so that he can have daily darshan of her. Thampuran followed her instructions, built a temple at Paravur and installed the Goddess.
