A village situated just a few kilometers from Alappuzha or Alleppey, Karumady or Karumadi is one of the amazing Alappuzha tourist places that explorers would love. The place plays a pivotal role in the history and development of Buddhism as a religion and is perhaps best known for the black granite statue of Sri Buddha.
What makes this statue even more alluring is the fact that the left-hand side of this Sri Buddha Statue is missing. Several travelers, especially the ones who are gravely ill or have someone who is ill, come to this village and touch the feet of this Lord Buddha statue because is believed that the statue has healing powers which can be directly transferred to the healer or the victim.
The place also has a wide range of local restaurants that any epicurean would love to try because of the use of indigenous spices and wide availability of different South Indian dishes and cuisines.
