This is another spectacular boat race of Kerala held annually on the Payippad River in Alappuzha. The boat race commemorates the legend associated with the installation of the idol at the Subrahmanya Swamy Temple, Haripad. The legend says that the villagers once had a vision, which directed them to a whirlpool in Kayamkulam Lake where they discovered the idol of Sree Subramanya. The Payippad Boat Race is held every year to remember this event.
