Valiyakandam Nadeel

Situated a little apart from the Arattukadavu, the immensely large plot known as Valiyakandam or Bhagavathy kandam is so unique in its shape stretching to more than 1.5 acres. Planting of paddy seeds or plants is undertaken as a holy ritualistic performance done with all the rustic significance and unshaken belief. After having the torrential rain a little subsided in the Monsoon in Chingam month in the Malayalam era, the ceremonial planting yagna takes place. Devotees from all the nook and corner of the earst-while Valluvanadu kingdom and far off places, irrespective of caste, creed, religion and belief throng for participating in the ritual planting, which they ardently believe to have worthy and healthy off springs and for securing dignified labour or job openings.
