Aranmula Vallasadya - Feast of the Divine

 

The Aranmula Vallasadhya is a ritual offering to the deity Lord Parthasarathy in which the oarsmen of the snake boats are offered a feast. With over 70 dishes it is probably one of the largest vegetarian feasts in India. An event that combines ritual offerings, sports and music, the elaborate feast lasts for more than two hours. The oarsmen perform special songs for the feast beginning by praising Lord Parthasarathy of Aranmula. Their songs then become more playful and include demands of particular dishes that they wish to be served.
