The original inhabitants of this area settled mostly around Krishnapur Matha. Before the 1970s, much of the area was covered with evergreen forests consisting mostly of ebony trees. The government took over land mostly belonging to Krishnapur Matha and handed it over for rehabitation of evacuee's affected by project of new sea port at Panambur. Many residents of this place were relocated from Panambur, when the New Mangalore Port Trust was established. In 1969 the families situated at Baikampady were rehabilitated at Krishnapur and were given house sites at the price of 12.5 cents each.
