The trusteeship of the Melattingal Siva Temple is decreed with Amunthuruthimadom (Kochumadom family). The chief among the sons in the family is prepared to administrate the daily pooja in the temple. Currently, Sri.A.P. Sachidanandaru, Sri. A.P. Thrivikramaru, Sri. A.P. Aravindakshararu and T.S. Gireesh Babu; Son of A.P. Thrivikramaru, who is the future chief priest of the next generation are the Managing Trustees.

This temple is now under the guidance of A.P Sachidanandaru; eldest among the present generation of priests at Amunthuruthimadom so far. While Tantri from THAZHAMONMADOM family is the chief priest who has the final say in ritualistic matters, Melsanthi Gireesh Babu hail from the Amunthuruthimadom in accordance to the ancient documents and the 'Rahasya Upadesam' (secret and sacred advice obtained only to the sons of the family from the previous generation) from time to time used to take the work of the entire administrative and spiritual works of the temple. People from all parts without any discretion of caste, creed, language, religion etc. poured for the blessings of the Mahadevan. Let us approach Melattingal Mahadeva the Lord of Lords with a pure and sincere heart then He grants even all worldly pleasures and all what devotees ask Him.
