Sree Parassinikadavu Muthappan Temple History:

According to history, Muthappan has been in a tribal family since he was born. As a result, when he arrived in Kunnathurpadi, he made a tribal man named Chantan his friend. One day Muthappan found Chantan tapping toddy from the palm tree. So, he asked Chantan for Toddy, but he refused to give toddy to Muthappan.

So, Muthappan, out of anger, cursed his friend Chantan and suddenly, he turned into a stone. In the month of Dhanu, his wife prayed and pledged to do the Oottu, Tiruvappana, and Amruthakalasam rituals to propitiate Muthappan. Muthappan returned her husband to her. Chantan family started worshipping Muthappan.
