Aranmula Temple, Kerala Tourism
In Kerala, about 10 kms. from Chengannur, on the bank of the river Pampa, is Aranmula, a holy place with a temple dedicated to Parthasarathi. Parthasarathi means the Charioteer of Parthan or Arjuna. Lord Krishna is the Charioteer, thus the Supreme Guiding Spirit in every man is symbolized by the beautiful idol of Sri Krishna.
A very colorful snake boat race is held here every year as an age-old religious festival. Aranmula is also famous for a special mirror made of bell metal, one of the rare curious coveted by all tourists. Its making has been a traditional secret of a certain family in Aranmula. This is one of the important tourist place in Kerala.
