AMBALAPUZHA KRISHNA

Famous for Palpayasam

The Ambalapuzha shrine is famous for its Palpayasam, milk porridge of exceptional sweetness. As Nalamkal put it, it s one of the wonders of Kerala. This is the most important offering at the temple at the uccha (noon) puja. There is a legend behind the introduction of Palpayasam as an offering.

Once the Champakasseri Thampuran had borrowed some paddy from a Brahmin belonging to Thalavady. For some reason, the Thampuran could not repay the same for a long time. One day when the ruler came to the temple for darshan the Brahmin accosted him and demanded his paddy immediately. The Thampuran asked his Minister to clear off the debt and left the place.
