Kadavallur Anyonyam

Kadavallur Anyonyam is a Rig Veda debate held annually at Kadavallur in Thrissur District, India. In the anyonyam two major Rig Veda schools (known as "Brahmaswam Math") based in Thirunavaya and Thrissur take part.[1] Over the years, the two Brahmaswam Maths at Thrissur and Thirunavaya developed a healthy and constructive competitive spirit. Kadavalloor Anyonyam is the final examination for the Vedic scholars of these institutions.[2]
