Kadavallur Anyonyam is perhaps the only example for the annual contest of traditional scholars in Kerala, in India, or even in the world.

Kadavallur Anyonyam is conducted in the month of November every year at the famous Sri Ramaswamy temple situated at Kadavallur, near Kunnamkulam, Thrissur Dt, Kerala. Traditional scholars of Rigveda assemble in the temple and enter in severe competitions in the chanting of Rigveda for eight days.
