KARAYAMPARAMBU
Karayamparambu is a beautiful village sandwiched between Angamaly and Karukutty. The N.H. 47 as well as the main rail line between Chennai and Cochin passes through this village. The northern part of Karayamparambu is called Elavoor Kavala and the Southern part is called Mookkanoor Kavala. As such, Karayamparambu lacks an identity of its own which I lament.
It has a nice Parish Church and a small primary school. This small village has produced many persons of high standing living in several parts of India and abroad.
Karayamparambu is surrounded by Kothakulangara, Peechanikadu, Karukutty, Azhakam and Njalukkara.

KUNNATHUKAL
KUNNATHUKAL means KUNNATHU KAAL
Kunnu= Hill (MALA) KUNNATHU = on hill
Kaal = Leg

According to early adage this name was kept by ancient Sage. PARASHURAMA who kept his legs upon these hills thus the name KUNNATHUKAAL.
Geographically this village has more than 30 small hills.
Other neighbouring villages named PARASHUVAIKKAL (means where PARASHURAMA kept his axe) and DHANUVACHAPURAM (Means where PARASHURAMA kept the Bow) are supporting such stories.
One of the oldest historical places is CHEZHUNGAANOOR SHREE MAHADEVA TEMPLE which''s age and construction details are older than TIRUVITAAMCORE dynasty which has a monkey engraved in its NYRATRYA (southwest) similar to the ancient temple constructed by AYAR dynasty of historic days.
SREE BHADRAKAALI ILAMKAM and CHIMMANDI (probably CHAMUNDI) NEELAKESHI temples are the perfect examples of ancient ARYA DRAVIDA civilisation.

CHIMMANDI NEELAKESHI temple has MUDI (an idol carved from live jackfruit tree) IRAKKAM festival which you cannot find in entire Kerala which''s rituals are don by URALIES (URALI= tribal people like KANIES).

SREE BHADRAKAALI ILAMKAM is accompanied by MULLASHERI MANA (Namboothiries and Ambalavasis) and as CHEZHUNGAANOOR SHREE MAHADEVA TEMPLE is to MATHAM (Tulu Bhats) and VARYAM (Varyers and Unnies)
CHIMMANDI NEELAKESHI temple is surrounded by Nairs.
YAKSHI KOVILs(an old fretful female deity known as INA EKSHI who''s idol is made by potters with mud and then baked, Prathista and pooja are don by non Brahmins and VILLADICHAN PATTU one of the oldest Dravidian art form is offered to the goddess ) are many and somany SARPPAKAVUs are also few.
You will find almost all community except Muslims in this village in which some most minority communities like Ambalavasi (children of Nambootiri and Nair) Chekkala, Panar, Uraali, Pandaaram, Gurukkal, Anpattaru (the selected 56 Nair families by the Travancore king for safeguarding the treasury ) Pilla (possibly the descendants of ETTUVEETTIL PILLAMAAR who opposed the king MAARTHANDA VARMA and was wiped out by him after his reign as the king of Travancore, some of them might have been escaped and took shelter under another Nair family which had favor in the king''s eye, two families MOOLAYAM veedu and NARUVIL are these as the former on might have been given shelter to the later as MOOLAM stands for ancient and have their own KUDUMBA YAKSHI KOVIL and the later have only a place where they worship CHAMUNDI as their KULADEVI.) Nadars an ancient Dravidian community, Izhavar, Pulayar, Parayar etc are also living in harmony.
A R.C.Church and the beautiful Kottukonam CSI church and so many other local churches are also situated in its vicinity.
Vidyavilasini Vayanashala one of the oldest VAYANASHALA having rare books in its collection and a Gvt.Hospital (CHAVADI) Three high schools and so many other institutions are some which I knew before 18 years when I left Kerala.

KUNNATHUKAL is even known for its foolish acts which has a link with the MANINADU Krishna temple where the doubtful natured KUNNATHUKALAR tested the RISHI who was pleased with their hospitality and gave them the MANI (Bell) which can be used in a case of emergency to call the sage back to the village for help. But they rang the bell two times without any reason and each time the sage warned them to not disturb him without any reason. But the bell rang again for the third time and the SANYASI who immediately appeared gave the curse which maid the villagers to make at least a mistake every ear.

Even though I have seen so many places around the world nothing can be compared with my village in any manor as it has SHAIVA VAISHNAVA SHAKTEYA CHRISTAVA Sanskruti stands for human welfare.

United Village
The village name itself has rflecting a good meaning which is in Malayalam it " Kara Ethum Chal". Yes it is a resting place for the people who lived sorrounding areas decades ago. Earlier only the cultivation was the main sourse of income. The people used to carry their cultivated belongings to the nearby market Chnglayi that time and and most of the people passes through Karayathumchal for their destination. They could see the people who lives nearby areas. After that Karayathumchal was the main plse for the farmers to take rest and water. So later the place called as Karayathumchal. People lives there from all catefory / religion. They are Christians, Hindus and Muslims. they share each other and love each other without any discrimination. They enjoy their lives in a secular village. Now in this village we can see the people that are highly educated and holding good position.
Thanks god for making our village united and secular.

Ente Gramam
What makes a village beautiful? Yes the natural beauty and a bunch of good people.
Thiroor is blessed with both of this. Here people and nature put hands together!!!. Thiroor is a beautiful village with paddy fields, small streams and pounds.

Getting there
=========
Thiroor is 8 KM far from Thrissur towards north. You can take private/ government Bus service from Thrissur North Bus stand. This is an Ideal way of public transport to reach Thiroor, You shall get into buses to Shournoor  or Medical colleague and get down at Thiroor Ambalam (Temple) or palli (church) stop.
Geography
========
The whole village shall be divided into two sides west and east side and the divider shall be the Thrissur shournoor main road.
This Main road is the most happening place in my village. Most of the Bazaars are located here and the famous ;) Thiroor Bar ends the chain of bazaars.
Thiroor service Co-operative Bank is the source and life of Thirookkar’s economy.
The Icon in education is ST Thomas High School Thiroor. Healths of Thirookkar are cared by our friendly doctor “Parakkal”.
Religious
=======
Most Thirookkar follow Hinduism or Christianity. The worship places are  
Located near to our Main Road. Vadakurumbha Devi temple and St Thomas church plays important role in religious actions.
Living in Thiroor
=============
                       Ancient Thirookkar were farmers and still you can find lot of families into agriculture. One of the main Agriculture products of this village is “Koorkka” a very tasty stuff. Ohhhh koorkka upperi vayil vellam varunnuu …

The East side, which is behind the church Christians, is living in chain houses we usually called as “Angadi”. The chain starts from rite front of Thiroor bar and ends at East Bazar or “Kizhakke Angadi”. You can find almost all variety of  behaviors here.
This place is really a good place to learn about how man found colonies and living in colonies. Here you will find lot of love a good way and mind of sharing living things and a sophisticated oral communication system. We normally call this as Dish channel if any thing happens in Main road then that news will be easily broadcasted through this chain houses. Hahah women talks too much …

All gossips and current hot news shall get from the above mentioned Dish Channels. Mostly House wife acts as dish antennas. The east south side is known as “thekkumuri” where Hindus lives. After the paddy fields you can find a belt of hills makes a fantastic natural scene. Sun rise from this Hills for Thiroor.  

  The west side known as  “Pottore”  were u find mixture of Hindus and Christians.
Cultural Events

Thiroor “Pooram”(hindu festival) and Thiroor “Perunnal” (Christian festival) Both are celebrated for 3 days in a year. Thirookkar sve for an year for spending for these festivals.
Pooram: Three days fabulous Cultural event filled with Panchavadhyam and other traditional dance forms and fire works.
Perunnal: Really rocks this is an event for which thiroorkkar really gets on “Spirits” and got modern band set Road show “Ambe” with big colorful umbrellas. Perunnal rocks…

Sports and Academic…

Once up on a time there was a famous club called “Minors sports club” with lot of events now it become just a financial organization .Personally  still I feel pain in heart. “Thirookkar” loves football and I like to tell you with pleasure and proud that our former Indian football team captain Jo Paul is from this small village.

Thiroor panchayath library feeds books for village readers, got a good Array of books for starters and matured readers.

Vedi Vidal(Chat) Areas

Thirookkar enjoys vedividals …. Main vedividal areas are chayakkadakal(Tea shops). This starts from Bhagavathy hotel (Veg) hotel near to Thiroor temple and baboos  Hotel (Non Veg) near to church these are the biggies in the village and there are lot more small tea shops like balettans chayakkada and Nangooraaans chayakkada.. Hotel “Pettennuu” will take one hour for a tea here. People enjoy veividals and news paper reading at chayakkadas.

Finally you may not find people celebrate all festivals without any kind of religious barricades anywhere other than here in Thiroor. People live in harmony and care for others too. There are Interesting characters in my village if I am about to explain then that will be an endless effort. I must talk about one Big Puli maram where we and my play mates used to play,sleep etc etc under that tree. Because of this our group knowns “Pulichodu” team. But our Puli maram got cut last year that also a sweet painful memory in mind …. Puli maram was the only witness of all our activities some are naughty and some are good. Let me stop this by remembering the sweet memories of that tree …. Ente pulimaramee ninakkayi ethaaa randittu kannuneer bhakkii …(Few tears in  memories of my dear Puli maram)

Again few lines of mallu song coming in to my mind …

“Kazhinjupoya kalam kadalinakkaree …
Kozhinjuveena ragamm kattinakkaree ..
Ooornakalee Ninnee Oorthu karayunnu nan …
Olangalil veenurundu pidayunnu nan … “
(Thirookkar : People of Thiroor)

The radio reminds me of my home far a-way
And drivin’ down the road I get a feeling’

Something more Collections....
PERUMBALAM, THE lush green, natural island, surrounded by the serene Vembanad backwaters, is a lovely tourist getaway. Apart from a number of peculiarities, its history and tradition adds glory and charm to this island.
Located about 1.5 kilometres away from Poothotta, which is 19 kilometres from Ernakulam on Kottayam route, Perumbalam surprisingly has all the modern amenities required for a town despite the absence of a bridge to the mainland. This must be the only island near Kochi that is yet to be connected to the mainland by a bridge. Though it is so close to Kochi, Perumbalam is part of the Cherthala Taluk.


It consists of six archipelagos, `Aamachadi'', `Perumbakamkari'', `Anchuthuruth'', `Naduthuruth'', `Upputhuruth'' and `St. Mary''s Island''. Among them St. Mary''s Island is still not inhabited. There is a helipad here, which is used by the Indian Navy for its practice sessions. Although saline backwaters surround the island, the wells on the island provide pure drinking water.
Inhabitants make use of passenger boats and small boats to reach the island. Today, this island that is fast turning out into a popular tourist destination, has numerous houseboats, speedboats and yachts anchored on its shores.
"Life is peaceful on the island. People of different religions, caste, creed and political affiliations live as one big family. This must be the most striking feature of Perumbalam," feels K. K. Chandrasekharan, a retired government servant, who is permanently settled on the isle. Most of the old timers do not want a bridge here, for they feel that this would destroy the tranquillity of the place. "We are quite aware of the ill effects of urbanization and do not want our island to be affected by it," Mr. Chandrasekharan adds. However, from the point of view of the tourists a bridge is top priority.
Many tour operators in Kochi, Poothotta and Alappuzha run houseboats and speedboats for tourists and are sometimes also used by the people. "We charge Rs. 400 per hour for safari boats and Rs. 3,000 for a six-hour journey for houseboats," says Krishnakumar, who runs the Krishanaveni Boating Centre at Poothotta. While, safari boats can accommodate 12 passengers, the houseboat can accommodate 25 people. Food is provided either by the tour operators on an extra charge or the tourists can take them along with them. It is common to see tourists cook food on the island itself.
The passenger boats from Poothotta take 45 minutes to reach the Perumbalam, after stopping at all the small islands. The Kerala State Water Transport Corporation runs passenger boats from Poothotta to Perumbalam every 30 minutes and most of the tourists prefer this mode to reach the island.


Perumbalam is a land of temples and `kavus.'' The 6. 5 sq. km. area, has 10 temples and plenty of `kavus''. Among them is the 400-year-old Arasukulangara Sreekrishana Temple. There are two churches and a mosque here.
The island has a hospital, a veterinary hospital, Ayurvedic, and homeopathic clinics. There is a government higher secondary school and two lower primary schools on the island. The State Bank of Travancore and the service co-operative banks have branches here. The island also has its own agricultural office, village office, panchayat office, telephone exchange and post office. The main occupation of the islanders is fishing, prawn peeling, collecting oysters and shells and toddy tapping. Coir and furniture are the main industries in the island. But what attract tourists are the lovely coconut lagoon and the sparkling backwaters.


A junkar service, from Panavally in Alappuzha to the island is also available. This enables tourists to reach the island on motor vehicles. But the roads here are so narrow that heavy traffic is sure to hinder smooth travel. There are about five auto-rickshaws plying on the island but for the islanders the bicycle is the main mode of transport. This island has a population of around 15,000.
Perumbalam has a 100-year history. The island was considered to part of the route that the Arab travellers took on their way to Kochi. In the 16th century the Portuguese attacked Perumbalam, which was then a part of erstwhile Kochi kingdom. Once, the Rajah of Travancore visited the island and was astonished to find pure drinking water in the wells despite the close proximity of the saline backwaters. When you are tired of fighting the mosquitoes, fed up of the traffic snarls, choking from the pollution all around, pack a quick bite and set off to this isle of peace and solace.


PERUMBALAM IS 1.5 kilometres away from Poothotta, which is 19 kilometres from Kochi, on the Kottayam route. So, take a bus or taxi to Poothotta, from Kochi.
This island, is yet to be connected to the mainland by a bridge. From Poothotta, there are several passenger boats which will take you to these islands. There is a junkar service from Panavally in Alappuzha to the islands too.

The place Melpadom is very beautiful and located in the bank of river Pampa. The river Pampa''s beautiful waves with the wind hugs my place. It is very small but the people from there are spreaded all over the world. Our honourable Chief Minister Mr. Oommen Chandy also belogs to this place in other words there is one more name called Vallakali.
A non-polluted and clean place sleeps about 8.00 pm till 6.00 am. Not a developed place as there is only one State Bank of Travancore, one lower primary & one upper primary school is there. Even there is not a clinic there. We the Pravasi''s are proud of our village that there is no illegal and criminal background our place have. No robbery, no theft, no fights etc. A major percentage of people from there  are working in overseas and in Defence Services. There are a lot of Nurses serving abroad and inland.
We like that place so much.

Hi friends,

Very happy to browse through Spider Kerala, also to see my village “Neeleeswaram” has listed here.
I am shiny a native of Neeleeswaram, schooling done from St. Thomas H.S Malayattoor. College education was in Morning Star Home Science College Angamaly and in Sree Sankara College Kalady. Studied Chemical Engineering diploma at Govt. Polytechnic, Kalamassery  (1990-1993).
Started my career with FACT (FEDO) Eloor, during the year 1994. Then moved to FEDO, Baroda for a year.

I joined Bechtel Delhi, during Sept 1997. This is a multinational Engineering office located at the outskirts of Delhi, ie, Gurgaon - gives enough opportunity to work abroad.

At present I am settled in Gurgaon along with my husband and son. I would like to have communication with my old friends, batch mates and ex-colleagues.

Elankur
It’s my village .The first remembrance is the smell of cashew nuts and mangos.
In spring it’s full of flower, In winter it’s cool, In rain it’s Muddy, In  summer it’s dusty. It’s the place where Onam, Vishu, Ramsan, Bakreed like religious festivals celebrated in traditional manner. We are not yet divided the village as Hindus and Muslims, eventhough many times invasions occurred but we people are lucky to overcome that.
Festivals
    The main Festival in our village is the “Thalappoli “ in chathankottupuram Bhagavathy Temple.(Chathagottupuram is evolved from “ Sasthave angottu puram”, Many names also abbreviated from the origin name to other name.some peoples  Have name like “Chee Raman” but their actual name at the time of “Peridal “is “Sree Raman”
.The last sins of  fudalisam)
Culture
    We have a mixed culture. Thiruvathirakkali, Oppana, Nagathan pat ..etc are the traditional  cultural forms we have.
   We have a “ Sarpa Kavu” where  entry is restricted. The sound of “Pulluvan Kudam”
is  a  “Lehary” for all of us.
Peoples
    Although most of the village peoples stop their studies at 7th or 10th now these days we are improved very much. This year 12th rank of S.S.L.C is bagged by  “Biju” who is from a farmer’s family. We have some great writers too(please give information about the persons you know in art).
Progress
   We have a lot of improvement. Up to my Post graduation I studied in front of the kerosene Lamp like other students in this village. Now we have tarred roads, electricity,Phones.. What more… some English medium Schools too.
Entertainments
We are best in “Spirits”, more than “liquor”, “Foot Ball” make us blind. we have a lot of clubs, which won a lot of tournaments and which made a lot of clashes.
Draw Back
The cell phone operators have a lot of fear on us, because we people are reactive and aggressive, so that we don’t get any range for cell phones in our Village.

SIMPLY Narukara
Located off the Manjeri Kozhikode road, narukara is a small village comprising a healthy mix of Hindus and Muslim communities living in harmony. The village is guarded on entry by the dieties in a small temple called by the village name Narukara. True to Kerala, u find yourself streching your eyes on the vast  fields lush with varieties of crops. U cannot ignore the Coconut trees ofcourse, towering on the sides and sort of marking border of the fields from residences.
As you discover the area you find that it is progressing towards being self sufficient  in all aspects. Whether the new college that has made the news or new swanky residences giving a hint of prosperity in the region.
Though for shopping other than for your basic needs a travel to Manjeri (just a short distance by bus) is unavoidable.
A very calm area it may seem, but enter the mainland and u find people busily going about their activities. Very social and very entertaining. Politics is in the blood of keralites and Narukara is no different. You see party offices and clubs very boldy declaring themselves. Bus stops and Tea shops are the places where you can meet most of the inhabitants of the area.

Though it does not boast of any tourist attractions, it certainly is the place for a quiet escape. DISCOVER IT SIMPLY.

Kurisumudi Church
Kurisumudi (where they found the cross) as it is popularly known, is 1269 feet above the sea level. Set in serene conditions, one cannot miss the divine. Mountain peaks gently caressing the clouds, the shimmering sheen of the Periyar below, the steep cliffs and the winding roads, all provide an ambience that is truly heavenly. Right from the time of the golden cross was found, the locals began a practice of lighting an oil lamp and whenever the lamp gave in for the wind, a herd of goats came down wailing and people used to climb the mountain and light the lamp again. Pilgrims who climb the mountain, even today carry with them seasamum seeds to feed the goats, even though goats are a rare sight.

He set foot at Kodungalloor, the famous port of yester years, in AD 52.
