The Trustee of the temple is the Raja of Valluvanad. His kingdom was annexed and converted into the Taluk of Valluvanad by the British. At that time it was the biggest Taluk of British Malabar. Now the area is partly in Malappuram district and partly in Palghat District.

Except that he presides over the annual Pooram, he does not interfere in the celebrations. At the Pooram, the Valluvanad Raja joins the Pooram procession, wearing a garland given to him by the pujari from the Sanctum Sanctorum. He walks in front of the elephant carrying the sword, as the representative of Bhadrakali.
