Ambalapuzha Tourism & Travel Guide

A fortuitous turn of events considering the journey took me through the historical town of Ambalapuzha; the snakeboats, designed for capacity and pace, were originally made for the unending bloody feud between the rajas of this town and neighbouring Kayamkulam....

SH 12, Ambalapuzha, Kerala 688561, India
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.

About Ambalapuzha

Very well known for the popular Shree Krishna Temple, Ambalapuzha is a small town in Kerala and sees visitors from all across the country. Though the town doesn't offer much to visitors, the temple here more than makes up for the lack of other touristy spots. The Krishna Temple is situated alongside a small pond and is famous for its delicious prasad, payasam. The dish is made of rice and milk is perhaps the best in the southern part of the country. In earlier times, human sacrifice used to take place here but now the sacrifice is restricted to animals. The temple is also one of the very few temples in the country where Pallipana is performed by sorcerers annually. Ladies, do remember to wear a sari or lehenga when you are visiting the temple or else you will not be allowed. The language spoken in the temple is Malayalam and if you'd like to understand what is happening, it's best to request a local to help. Other than the temple, there is nothing much to explore in Ambalapuzha and you can use this town as a stop on your holiday itinerary rather than making it your entire vacation destination.
