Pathanamthitta, Nov 03 : The famed Ambalapuzha palpayasam will be known as Gopala Kashayam from now on, Tranvancore Devaswom Board President A Padmakumar said on Sunday.
Padmakumar said as per traditions, the Palpayasam was earlier known as Gopala Kashayam. Hence from now on the religious offering will be distributed under the new label. The palpayasam is a liquid form of sweet made from rice, milk and sugar offered to God Srikrishna, the presiding deity, at the famous temple in Ambalapuzha at noon every day.
He also instructed that the name Ambalapuzha Palpayasam should not be used by anyone else. The procedure for the same would be completed before my term, Padmakumar said. He said TDB will take patent for Ambalapuzha Palpayasam, Thiruvarppu Ushapayasam, Kottarakkara Unniyappam, Sabarimala Appam and Aravana.
