Payippadu Boat Race

Payippadu Jalolsavam is held on the Payippad Lake, 35 Km from Alappuzha, in memory of the 'Prathista' (Installation) ceremony of the deity at the Haripad Subrahmanya Swamy Temple. There is a legend behind the installation of the deity- the deity is believed to have been recovered from the Kayamkulam lake according to a vision of one of the devotees of Subrahmanya. The Jalosavam which commences on the festival day of Onam in August/ September, is celebrated for three days and includes boat processions and races. Spectacular Snake boat (Chundanvalloms) processions are taken out accompanied by Vanchipattu (song of the oarsmen) on the first two days. The competitive boat-race takes place on the third day.
