ARN - 005 - Snake Boat Race - Aranmula

Stock Image No: ARN 005
The Aranmula Boat Race takes place at Aranmula, Kerala near a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna and Arjuna. Thousands of people gather on the banks of the river Pampa to watch the snake boat races. Nearly 40 snake boats or "chundan vallams" participate in the festival. The oarsmen sing traditional boat songs and wear white dhotis and turbans. The golden lace at the head of the boat, the flag and the ornamental umbrella at the center make it a show of pageantry too.
