Rajamudy, earlier, known as padamughamm began to be known as Rajamudy after the establishment of Christuraj Church. It is said that while doing agricultural works in the area the people of that time got a PADAVAL of an ADIVASI King and the people decided to name the place as Rajamudy.

Sri. Pappachan Vadakkel felt an idea of constructing a Kurisupally at Rajamudy. He shared the idea to his friends, Sri. Chandykunju, Paikada and Sri. Thommachan Punnakuzhiyil. They decided to approach Rev. Fr. Thomas Chgettiparambil, then the vicar of Upputhode Parish. Fr. Thomas Chettiparambil welcomed the idea and suggested them that instead of construction a kurisupally, they should think of a church at Rajamudy. The idea of a church at Rajamudy was a great inspiration to them and decided to go ahead with this idea. Sri. Pappachan Vadakkel Donated three acres of land Sri. Thommachan Punnakuzhy too donated 36 cents of land for the church.
