ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

Origin of Boat-race

He requested the Brahmin to come again for ceremony next Chingom. But the latter replied that could be seen at Aranmula temple. He was none other than Hari who revealed Himself to the Brahmin in a dream.

The next year, Bhattatiri left for Aranmula with 51 paras of rice and all the other materials for the feast and reached the temple in the early hours of Thiruvonam day. He also incurred all the expenses for pujas for the day in the temple. The thoni or boat carrying all these goods to Aranmula is called Thiruvonachilavu thoni. The tradition continues to this day.

Boat race at Aranmula is a ritual, not a competitive race like other boat races in Kerala
