Karumadi Travel

Only three kilometers east of Alleppey is the village of Karumadi. There is a large black granite statue there that is very famous.

This sculpture is known as the Karumadi Kuttan. This statue is a left over remnant from the days that the Buddha religion was very popular in the region. Historians say that this black Buddha was carved in either the 9th or 10th century. Nowadays, Hindu is the more popular religion to belong to, but that does not change the beauty of this Buddha statue.

The fact that it is made from black quartz makes it even more unusual, since quartz is normally associated with a gray color
