Aranmula Boat Race
The Aranmula Temple, located 130 kilometres from Trivandrum, organises the most popular and prominent boat race of marvellous palliyodams. At the event, colourful hardwood sailboats with lengths ranging from 100 to 140 feet may be observed. They are embellished and accessorised attractively with golden lacing at the crown, elaborate banners, and ornate umbrellas in the middle. The race is a visual feast for the eyes.
