Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Kerala  /  Thrissur District  /  Cheruthuruthi
Cheruthuruthy also known as Vallathol Nagar is a small town in India near Wadakkanchery, Thrissur on the banks of the Nila (Bharathapuzha) river.AdministrationFalls in Talappilly taluk of the revenue district of Thrissur. Thrissur is 30 km from Cheruthuruthy.It is situated on the banks of the Nila river . It is a serene and scenic village.Kalamandalam UniversityThe striking attraction of Cheruthuruthy is the Kerala Kalamandalam. It is started in the year 1930 to teach Kerala, performance arts like Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Thullal, Koothu, Folk Dances, Panchavadyam and Drama. Recently, it has been recognized as a Deemed University by the Government of India. Many persons trained here have achieved national and international acclaim. It follows the residential schooling system and caste is not at all a criterion for admission.Poet VallatholMahakavi Vallathol Narayana Menon played a primary role in setting up the Kalamandalam. His Samadhi is in the old Kalamandalam campus. For those who want to have a glimpse at his contributions to the cultural world, a visit to the Vallathol Museum at Cheruthuruthy is a must. Another thing Kalamandalam can boast about is the ‘Koothambalam’, i.e., the special hall for performing the ritual and classical dances like koothu and koodiyattam. Since the old times, Koothambalams are considered very sacred and were built only in temple premises. Kalamandalam is the only exemption where the ‘Koothamabalam’ is not in the temple premises.TemplesKozhimamparambu Bhagavathy temple, Nedumpura Kulasekharanellur Siva temple, Chirakkulangara temple, Kaipanchery temple, Pangavu temple, St. Thomas Church and JumaMosque are some other attractions in Cheruthuruthy. Another place to visit in Cheruthuruthy is the Palace of Kochi Maharaja which has recently been converted into a 3-star Ayurvedic Heritage Resort named The River Retreat. The Palace of ‘Kavalapara Mooppil Nair’ is located 8 KM from Cheruthuruthy. Another worth watching pilgrimage place in Cheruthuruthy is the Shiva temple, a fitting example of Kerala’s traditional architecture.
