It is written there that King Kundavarma Bupendra of the Alupas Dynasty caused the establishment of the Lokeshwara Statue in the Kadarika Temple. Kadarika is the earliest name and the name Kadri is due to the influence of Buddhism here.

Shri Krishna Janmashtami is the main festival here as Lord Krishna is the prime deity. The acts of the childhood of Lord Krishna where he stole butter and curd are enacted on this day. A pot filled with butter or curd is hung high from somewhere with a rope and young men and children form human pyramids and then try to reach the top and break it.
