Temple History :

The Peralassery Subramanya Temple is located at Peralasseri, located 15 km from Kannur town on Kannur Kuthuparamba road. The main deity of this temple is Lord Subramanya. Nearby small temples (“Chuttambalam”) has deities of Lord Ganesha, Lord Ayyapa. One week long Kodiyettam festival associated with the Peralassery Subramanya temple is in the Month of December, every year.There is a pond which is rebuilt recently which is one of the biggest temple ponds in Kerala. During the Vanavasam) period of Lord Sri Raman, Lakshmana, Hanuman, they had to stay in a place inside the forest called Perallasseri. The people around knowing the divine power of SriRama started to provide all the help needed for them. They began to pray to this lords for their blessings. Hanuman became happy and wanted to create a temple here for the localities to pray. On hearing Hanuman’s request, Sri Rama told Hanuman that they are in human form and hence creating an idol of them is not correct according to the Shastras. Sri Rama suggested an alternative, saying that if Hanuman could find an equivalent idol, Sri Rama would do the installation(Pratistha) in the same location.

Hanuman thought about this for some time and found that the only idol that will be equivalent to Sri Rama and Sita Devi together will be the Valli Parinaya Subramaniyan. Hanuman found that this idol is in river Sarayu. Hanuman was late to find the idol. As the decided time approached, Sri Rama, not seeing Hanuman, decided to do the Pratistha with his Peruvala (The big bangle). Thus this place got the name as Peruvalasseri and later it was changed to Perallasseri. As soon as the Prathishta ceremony was over, Hanuman returned but was sad seeing the idol. To make Hanuman happy, Sri Rama asked him to do Prathishtta on the West of the current Prathishta. Also, Sri Rama told everyone that to get his blessings, anyone who prays at Perallasseri needs to pray at Makreri too else the prayers go unanswered. Hanuman was happy and done the idol installation(Pratistha) one foot West. However, for doing the installation ceremony as well as for the pujas, he couldn’t find Punyatheertham(divine water) and hence he used his powerful tail to hit on the ground to create a pond.
