Ezhara ponnana and Aaranmula Kannadi

The Ezhara Ponnana Darshanam is in Mahadeva temple of Ettumanoor. 7 elephants with 2 feet height and one small elephant with 1 feet height are called 'Ezharaponnana'. The display of this wonder is in 8th day of the festival of the temple. These elephants are made of jackwood(varikka plavu). The wooden elephants are covered with golden plates. The legend behind these elephants is a story based on Anizham Thirunal Marthandavarma. Once he attacked the Ettumanoor, during the war the temple got damaged. After that the king and his family had suffered illness and other myseries. Then to propitiate the great Ettumanoorappa he offered 'Ezharaponnana' with 'thotti, valar'and a 'Pazhukkakkula' in gold.

Aaranmula kannadi is a unique work of Kerala...
