religions like Buddhism and Jainism had some impact among the Malayalee
Hindus, but with the Aryan migration to the south. There was dissemination
of all these religion.
Though there is evidence of practice of Jainism in Kerala before
the arrival of Aryans. History is silent about it. The Famous Jainmedu
temple in Palakkad is the manifestation of Jainism in Kerala. Today
few families of Jain community are found around Palakkad in Kerala.

places in World where Jews are living in peace. There is a Synagogue
