There is a very simple and interesting legend behind the existence of Mammiyoor Temple. After the departure of Lord Krishna for Vaikunda concluding His Avtar, His abode Dwaraka was swallowed by the sea. His own Vigraha-idol designed by Himself was floating on the waves. The planet Jupiter - Brihaspathi who is known as Guru and Vayu were looking for a perfect place on the earth to consecrate the deity of Lord Krishna. Finally, during the quest, Guru and Lord Vayu reached the banks of a lake namely Rudratheertha, which was created by Lord Shiva. The lord was found to be sitting on a penance for a long time. The intention of the Guru and lord Vayu was understood by Lord Shiva, who suggested them to consecrate the idol of Lord Krishna on the banks of Rudrathirtha Lake. In order to do so, lord Shiva shifted to the nearby place that is the other side of the lake.
