The village got its name from the famous Lord Shiva temple- Sri Killikkurussi Mahadeva Kshetram situated in the village. The temple is very old and legends say it has been founded by the sage Sree Suka Brahma Hrishi.

Kunchan Nambiar's birthplace

The village is the birthplace of famous Malayalam satire poet and founder of the Ottamthullal art form, Kunchan Nambiar (Rama panivada). The house where Kunchan Nambiar was born, Kalakkathu Bhavanam, is now a cultural centre, undertaken by Department of Culture of Kerala State Government. There is also a library situated there in memory of Kunchan Nambiar called Kunchan Smaraka Vayanasala - Kunchan Memorial Library.

His home is near to the Killikkurussi Mahadeva temple. It is also the hometown of one of Chakyar's prominent disciples, Guru Kelu Nair.
