Malanada ~ The temple of Kaurava King

Posted by Syam on January 22, 2018 | 6 Comments

Peruviruthy Malanada or Malanada is the only Duryodhana Temple in South India. The story is that as part of his efforts to trace out the “Pandavas” in exile, Duryodhanan traversed the forests in the south and reached Malanada hill. The annual festival of Malanada Temple is known as “Malakkuda”. It is amazing to witness the ceremonial display of giant wooden horses and bullocks in connection with the annual temple festival.

Malakkuda Festival is celebrated during the summer, the second half of March every year in Kerala.
