The Sree Rama Swami Temple on the banks of Karimpuzha at Sreekrishnapuram, Palakkad district is famous as the Ayodhya of the South. The presiding deity is Lord Ram. Devotees believe that Karimpuzha on whose banks this temple is located is the Sarayoo River that flowed through Ayodhya in the Treta Yug.
