Karumadikuttan is the charming name of dark stone statue of Lord Gautama Buddha situated in Karumadi town close Ambalapuzha, Alappuzha area. Arranged on the banks of Punnamada lake, the statue is named "Karumadikuttan" as the dark young men here are endearingly called so. Accepted to be constructed at some point before twelfth century by Buddhist ministers to spread the message of affection and peacefulness, this southernmost condition of India still keeps on maintaining this rich legacy of Buddhist human progress with all its past radiance. Left half of the statue is in a missing state and is presently embraced by the Archeological Survey of India. Indeed, even now Buddhism's enduring impact is seen set apart in the social life, society and provincial dialect here. This statue cut out of dark rock stone is an exceptional piece as there are a couple dark statues of Lord Buddha over the world.
