The ancient Murukkuli Okkanamkode Sree Siva Temple, owned by Kuthiravattom Swaroopam is situated to the northern side of the vast pond of Okkanamkode in Pallassana Grama Panchayath of Palakkad District, Kerala. According to Prof. K.V. Krishnayyar, an eminent historian, the history of Kuthiravattom Swaroopam dates back to the late half of 15th century AD. The Swaroopam, existed as ‘Kizhakkantala Kappavan’ meaning the guardians of eastern side during the reign of Zamorins of Kozhikode. Later, when British took over, the Swaroopam remained in the status of ‘Sthani Janmi’ meaning accredited land lords and they kept a dignified profile with out any extravagant paraphernalia attached to lordship. Swaroopam established several irrigation projects, schools and temples. The Okkanamkode pond and the temple would have been established in this process. The vast pond is locally called ‘Talakkulam’ meaning head storage yielding water for agriculture. The rock outcrop formation inside the pond would have been aptly selected as a temple site for ensuring the spiritual elightment of the agro based society. The members of the royal Kuthiravattom Swaroopam still maintain and nurture the cultural heritage passed on to them through ages. The decision of the Swaroopam to hand over the pond temporarily to the local self government for utilizing the same for the purpose of coaching for swimming, water conservation and ecological balance etc. points to this matured social commitment. Moreover, the Swaroopam entrusted the temple - now in ruins - to ‘Pallassana Temple Renovation Committee’ to renovate the same and assured all sorts of support to the committee to meet the end.
