Kalaripayattu—The secret art of fighting and healing. Kalaripayattu is said to be one of the oldest martial art forms in the world, and some experts have gone to the extent of calling it the mother of all fighting systems. Perhaps there is some truth in it, as the influence of Kalaripayattu is discernible in the more well-known fighting art forms like Karate and Kung Fu. Kalaripayattu flourished in the southern-most tip of India. Violence is not part of the philosophy of Kalarippayattu. In fact, one of the often-repeated lessons drilled into a prospective Kalari practitioner is: 'One step backward and a family is saved.' A good Kalari practitioner is adept at keeping his emotions in check. In short, he can control his mind and his body. Kalaripayattu makes you mentally and physically aware. Once you attain the highest stage, once you master the craft, your body becomes your eyes. Close your eyes and your body will see for you. Such is the power of concentration that you will possess.
Learning Kalaripayattu also involves learning about your body, the muscle movements and the bone structure. It was only natural that the Kalari Master—Gurukkal—became the local physician as well. In the course of learning a highly physical art which puts the body through a punishing schedule, injuries - minor and major - were an everyday affair and the master often ended up treating his disciples in the absence of a strong health care system. Thus, Kalari developed a healing aspect as well. Today, the Kalari way of attending to the wear and tear of the body is well-documented and widely respected. Modern lifestyle ailments like spondylosis and lower back pain can be easily cured by a Gurukkal in a matter of days. All without cutting open the temple that your body is.

Among the many rivers that glide across the plains to merge their waters with the Arabian sea. Muvattupuzha is so called because the term means "the land where three rivers merge" The mighty of Muvattupuzha is mainly depending on the Muvattupuzha river which is formed from three rivers viz. Thodaupuzha river, Kothamangalam river and Kaliyar river.
