Payippad Vallaarattu or Jalotsavam is a three day water festival conducted in Payippad Lake 35 km from Alappuzha district of Kerala state in south India. There is a close relation between this Payippadu Vallam Kali and Subramanya Swamy Temple in Haripad.

The ancient temple of the village Haripad belongs to the 16th century and hence the boat race can be traced to that era making it the oldest boat race of India. It is believed that villagers had a dream of an Idol of Lord Subrahmanya present in Kayamkulam Lake near the village. Trusting their vision they went to the lake. A whirlpool appeared in the lake and a beautiful idol with four hands of Lord Subrahmanya was found there. Then the idol was taken out and was brought to the shore in a ceremonious procession of country boats. It was installed in a temple at Haripad village. In remembrance of the retrieval of the idol it became a ?Jalotsavam? a celebration with water and gave birth to the present day boat race.
