Kasaragod – Discover Hidden Treasures

Kasaragod is bound to cast its magical spell on every visitor with its most exciting sights tucked deep in its lesser-known destinations. With a multitude of sigh-inducing sights, the district calls all to explore the unexplored!

Achamthuruthi is one such less explored slice of paradise situated in the midst of the Tejaswini River (Kariangode River), near Cheruvathur of Kasaragod district that bursts with myriad miraculous beliefs and customs. Achamthuruthi welcomes you with its long foot bridge (400 metres long), the longest of its kind in the State.

As the morning unfurls, take a country boat and cruise through the picturesque waters and enjoy the symphony of the rustic life and soothing murmurs of this pristine corner.

What adds more charm to this serene and slow-moving village is the ritual artform Theyyam. On the banks of the Tejaswini River situates the Vishnu Moorthy Bala Gokulam Temple where, every year as part of its annual festival, Theyyam performances are held. Since, it is performed exclusively by the unmarried youth based here, it is known as pillerutheyyam, and ottakolam theyyam. The myths and legends associated with this are nothing short of awe inspiring.
