Correct. It was erected a 10 years ago.
The road (mananthavady -Panamaram Short cut) also raised to this level about 25 year ago.I remember the biggest crowd was there in this open place for the annual festival. Most of them were Tribals. But I noticed they never entered the temple. It was a big question for me in my childhood.

Thomas Cussans Painting of Wyanad. Dated 1820. Only available image of Wayanad of pre 1850 Era. Location is not identifide. This is a ghat road. Not Thamarassery churam(Non Exist then). I think it is probably Peria Churam. I understand Nick travelled through Kuttiadi (cotiot) Churam instead of Peria churam, in his travelogue. Please go for his excellent blog here.

He described the Banasura Hills in background, and tells that it may be from Makkiyad area. May not be correct in my opinion.
I will visit the same site and make a comparative photo.

If the the view in the painting is towards North, the background scenes resembles Kuttiady ghat . The road curves almost. Makkiyad is near by . But the banasura hills should be in south part of Ghat.
