This temple is situated in Kappiset, 3 kms away from Pulpally town. Till 1964, there was only a sacred banyan tree in this spot which was protected and worshipped by tribes. When so many people migrated to Kappiset, from faraway places, they thought of constructing a temple here. A saint who came from North India stayed here for a short while. It is believed that a devotee named Govindan had a dream the day before Shivrathri in which Lord Shiva appeared in front of him. The next day he dipped in nearby river and came up with a Shiva Linga. This was taken to the spot and consecrated in the presence of three sanyasins who came there.
