According to the great Hindu epic Ramayana, Ram Leela is an old religious and cultural tradition that plays on stage every year for the 10 successive nights.

Every year, the Payippad River in Alappuzha bears witness to a resplendent water carnival- the Payippad Boat Race. This water regatta is held to celebrate a legend related to the installation of the idol at the Subramanya Swamy Temple, Haripad.

The legend has it that the village folk once had a vision directing them to a whirlpool in Kayamkulam Lake where they discovered an idol of Lord Subramanya. The boat race is held every year to commemorate this.
