The huge statute of Yakshi, a work of the renowned sculptor Kanai Kunjiraman created some controversy among the conservative society because of the nudity of the statue. But it is one of the main attractions of Malampuzha. But for majority of art loving people it is an awesome work which has to be appreciated.

Yakshi statue is located in Malampuzha garden. Some appreciate the art and some do object it. It is very tall and looks as if the lady is meditating with her hands above her shoulders.

It is an art installation inside Malampuzha Dam garden. No additional fees. You'll love it if you are into art. The installation is very well made and maintained.
