Aranmula

Aranmula is a beautiful village located further inland from Chengannur, (9 km west) on the Ernakulam Quilon railroad. It is on the left bank of the Pampa river. It is from here that the sacred jewels of Ayyappan are taken in procession to Sabarimalai each year.

Aranmula is also known for the watersports involving a spectacular procession of snake boats. It is also linked with legends from the Mahabharata. A unique mirror-making tradition survives (16th century) at the village of Aranmula, Kerala, southern India. Here, a cast high-tin bronze mirror of 33% tin with highly polished surface or reflective properties is made which is comparable to, if not much better than, modern mercury glass-coated mirrors.

The Aranmula mirror (Aranmula Kannadi) is famous the world over. The Aranmula Vallamkali is one of the famous boat races in Kerala.
