The temple is more than thousand years old. The four renovated temple complexes were built by Karnataka and Kerala artisans using black granite and wood carvings. Ancient single stone multistage granite carvings known as “Veerastambha” can be found in the temple. The famous “Shri Narayana Guru” statue is carved in white marble and situated in the entrance. The presiding deity of the Kudroli Bhagavathi Temple is “Shri Cheerumbha Bhagavathi”.
The Arka Ganapathi Temple and the Venkataramana Temple are close by and have “Shri Padangara Bhagavathi” and "Shree Pullurali Bhagavathi" as the presiding deities.
The ‘Nadavali’ festival is held every year in March. Every seven years, the festival of “Bharani” is held, which lasts seven days. The Kaliyata festival is held once every 25 years. It is a combination of festivals held in 17 temples from Udupi in Karnataka to Kasaragod in Kerala.
