ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

Once, the legend goes, the chieftain of Ayiroor, a nearby village, planned to intercept the traditional boat carrying the materials to Aranmula because the boat was being escorted by the dependents of the chieftain's sworn enemy, the Ranni chieftain.

The news spread like wild fire and men from twenty-eight Karas decided to thwart the attempt. Fully armed, they escorted the sacred boat in their own chundans or snake-boats to the temple, thus frustrating the chieftain's plan.
