The headquarters of the historic Chempakasseri Ambalapuzha rajahs were near the temple. Ambalappuzha remained an independent principality under the Chempakasseris until the mid-18th century when it was conquered and absorbed by the Kingdom of Travancore under Marthanda Varma (1706–1758). Thereafter, the Chempakasseri royal family went into decline.
The Ambalappuzha Sri Krishna Temple is located 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) east of the town junction and was built in 1790 by the local ruler Chembakasserry Pooradam Thirunal Devanarayanan Thampuran.The temple offers prasad ham of payasam, a sweet pudding made of rice and milk.
Kalakkaththu Kunchan Nambiar (1705–1770) also spent his youth at Ambalappuzha.
