Padinjarai Yakkarai was a place of green fields.  Mother Bhagavathi was in penance in the midst of this place.  During harvest times, the sound of pounding rice was high, She moved to a place under a banyan tree.  People of the place wanted to build a temple for Mother Bhagavathi.  The Namboodris of the place, in their prashnam prediction found that the banyan tree area was the correct place for building the temple.  The temple for Mother Bhagavathi came into being.  The place is called Kizhakku Yakkarai.
