Karumadi is a beautiful village located near Ambalapuzha. This village is named after the black granite idol of Lord Buddha- KarumadiKuttan. This 9th-century statue is in a sitting position and is almost 3ft tall. A major attraction of the idol is that the left hand is missing. When the Dalai Lama came to Kerala in 1965, he visited Karumadi. This place known for its serenity attracts tourists and history- buffs. A village named after the idol, Karumadi is equally blessed by nature. A walk through the village provides an insight into the local life and culture of people.
Among Alappuzha tour places, Karumadi is a true beauty that should not be missed out!
