Legends say that in a fight between Zamorins and Valluvakonathiri(the King of Valluvanad), The Zamorin got defeated in spite of having better military and financial might.The zamorin pondered this and decided that Bhagavathees blessings were with Valluvakonathiri. The Zamorin undertook Tapas in disguise at Thirumanthakunnu Temple, the family Temple of Valluvakonathiri, until Devi manifested before him.

History Of Sree Valayanad Devi TempleThe prowess wealth and cultural eminence of Kerala were primarily dependent of Valluvanad and Kozhikode. This astonishing condition was attributed to the merciful blessing of the Goddess whom the families of Valluvakkonathiri and the Zamorin of Calicut worshiped with intense devotion. Sree Valayanad Bagavathy is the family deity of Zamorin Swaroopam Despite the great army and financial strength of the Zamorin Raja he could not subjugate Valluvakkonathiri who as his political foe in their struggle for power. The Zamorin who could not win his battle against Valluvakkonathiri understood that the reason for his failure in the battle was due to Valluvakkonathiris high spiritual strength. Valluvakkonathiri acquired this power because of his intense worship of Devi. Therefore the Zamorin Raja also started worshipping Devi intensely. Devi was immensely pleased with the Zamorin and appeared before him. The Zamorin pleaded with the Devi to come over his place and settle there Devi who agreed to do so was ceremoniously led to his place and consecrated at Valayanad in Kozhikode. After this, he worshiped Devi permanently from Valayanad. This is the traditional belief relating to this temple.
