The temple was built in the 13th century and has undergone renovation multiple times. I was 15 minutes earlier to the Pal-Payasam distribution and the first thing I did was to get a token for it. At 12 after Naivedyam the piping hot payasam was distributed in sealed containers in half and one-liter portions. The lake beside the temple was exactly how I had imagined it to be. Soaking feet in the cold water of the lake was refreshing in that scorching heat. I somehow managed to get a spoon and took a heavenly sip of Payasam, yes! it was worth the visit.

After getting off from the houseboat, we set off on the road to the famous Sree Krishna Temple at Ambalapuuzha, a small town located 14 kms south of Alleppey. After spending couple of hours in the temple complex with the supreme deity, and few minutes having a photoshoot with the temple elephant which irritated the jumbo towards the end, we bought some Kerala sarees and dress material for our loved ones. Then, resumed our journey 5 kms west of Ambalappuzha to a lesser known place called as Karumadikkuttan.
