The temple was constructed in the middle of 15th century. According to some old inscription of the temple during the period of Vijayanagar Empire with the help of nayakkers i.e Telugu speaking governers, who have build lot of temples in Tamil Nadu, South India. As per mythology SRI PRASANNA VENKATESA PERUMAL alone incarnated in karbagraga with Sri Devi and BooDevi. Later Narasimha perumal was also incarnated and hence perumal was named as SRI PRASANNA VENKATA NARASIMHA PERUMAL.
