A divine touch from God’s Own Country is the Payyanur Pavithra Mothiram. It is a sacred ring that is worn on the ring finger of the right hand and is believed to bring luck and prosperity to one’s life. The jewellery is noted for its Pavithrakettu, an intricate knot design.
Payyanur Pavithra Mothiram is an exclusive gold ornament with a matchless and mythical tradition. They are produced by some extended families in the Payyannur village of Kannur district and the origin of this unique wonder is closely related to Payyannur Subramanya Swami Temple.
Mythology pictures the production of this peculiar jewellery as Lord Subramanya’s wish. In the earlier days instead of gold, Darbha, a kind of grass was used for its making and legends says that during the reconstruction of the temple the priest advised a goldsmith to make it in gold. Thus originated the Pavithra ring of Payyannur.
