Before constructing the temple in Alagramam Village people who were living in Alagramam used to go for Keezh Idayalam Jain Temple or Avani Avittam to wear Poonal. After some years, Alagramam Jain people decided to build a temple in Alagramam Village. On the day of Avani Avittam they took a small Lord Parshwanath idol from Keezh Idayalam Temple to Alagramam and built a small temple on the occasion of Avani Avittam to wear poonal. After some days the temple construction work started. The temple was built step by step. The first Tirthankarar Adinath is the moolavar of this temple.
