The  town of  Peringadi is on the bank of Mahe river (a.k.a. Mayyazhi Puzha) in Kerala. Mahe is an erstwhile French colony, and has been the battleground of feud between the local kings, the British, and the French.

There are a number of  small temples, and each temple has its own annual festival in the month of January or February. The festivals are generally known as "Tira" or "Tyyyam", and celebrated with folk arts and music.
