Aranmula Palliyodam

Chundan Vallam (Beaked Boat) known to the outside world as Kerala snake boats are one of the icons of Kerala culture used in the Vallamkali

Constructed according to specifications taken from the Sthapathya Veda, an ancient treatise for the building of wooden boats, these boats are anywhere from 100 to 138 ft in length. With the rear portion towering to a height of about 20 ft. and a long tapering front portion, it resembles a snake with its hood raised. Its hull is built of planks precisely 83 feet in length and six inches wide.
