Exponents of 'Anyonyam' - Rare 4000 year old Vedic Tradition honoured

The 10th century Sri Rama Temple in Kadavallur, a small village in Thrissur district of Kerala, is famous not only for its architectural beauty but for being the only place in the entire country where a unique tradition of Vedic Learning is being preserved for the last 4000 years.

The Anyonyam Test

Demonstrating their talent in Vedic learning, two schools, the Thirunavay Yogam and the Thrissur Yogam met for ten days annually in the Rama Temple at Kadavallur and challenged and examined each other, reciting at ease from any part of the Veda. The test also involved splitting the sutras into their component words without any mistake. Success in the test would indicate complete command and precision learning of the Vedas. Of the ten days, Rig Veda exams take place for eight days, Yajur and Sama Veda for one day each. Unfortunately, one of the schools has closed down and the Thrissur school survives.
