Palliyodams (snake boats)

Palliyodam means boat of Lord Parthasarathy, presiding deity of the centuries-old Sree Parthasarathy Temple at Aranmula. Aranmula palliyodams are unique in their shape and structure. The boats are equal in length at the front, centre and rear. Only the central portion touches the water. palliyodams whose length is 110 metre and above are called A batch palliyodams and the ones with length to 80 to 90 metre belong to the B batch.
