The Blue Periyar River at Aluva at Dusk

The Blue Periyar River at Aluva at Dusk

As dusk was falling, the blue Periyar river flows silently past Aluva in all her glassy majesty. Aluva is Ernakulam/Kochi’s most important suburb which is slowly getting integrated into the city. Facing us in the distance is the famous Aluva Manappuram where thousands of people congregate during Sivaratri to do “pithrutharppanam” or “Bali tharappanam” to honor their ancestors. The Periyar river is closely tied with Kerala and her culture from ancient ages. Shot from a railway bridge. This is the location.
