Karumadi Kuttan

Small crowds can be seen making their way throughout the year to a site located about 5 km east of Ambalappuzha in Alappuzha district. The destination is the Karumadi Kuttan, a renowned Buddhist pilgrim centre, wherein lies a special Buddha statue that dates back to the 11th century. Made of solid black granite, the entire site is today under the protection of Kerala Archaeology Department. People from across the nation and abroad come here to pay homage and seek blessings, as stories about its wonderful healing properties have spread far and wide.
