Payyannur Pavithra Mothiram

Payyannur Pavithra Mothiram
Payyannur Pavithra Mothiram is considered to be a sacred ornament. It is worn on the ring finger of the right hand reminding the 'Darbha' grass ring worn on the right hand's ring finger during holy rituals of Hindu tradition.  It is strongly believed that this ring will bring luck and grace to those who wear it with great devotion.  To get the original grace of the ring, one has to be self desciplined. The one who wears this ring must be pure vegetarian and should avoid alcohol and immoral activities.  For women, they have to remove the ring during the period of menstruation. The makers of this sacred ring assure that there is a tradition of  having special poojas in Payyannur Subhaymanya Swami Temple before it is handed over to the customer.

I have two links to suggest to know more about the Payyannur Pavithra Mothiram.


Many people used to wear it as a part of fashion also. That type of  'Pavithrakettu' rings and bangles are available with many jewellers. But the beauty of the real Pavithra Work - it is a monopoly of  goldsmiths of Payyanur area.


  1. Good info but the spelling of payyanur is wrong. There is only one 'n' in Payyanur. It is not 'Payyannur'.
