Adhyathmaramayanam Kilippattu is the Malayalam version of the Sanskrit Ramayana. Adhyathmaramayanam kilippattu was written by Thunchaththu Ramanujan Ezhuthachan in the early 17th century, and is considered to be a classic of Malayalam literature. Mandara Ramayana—written by Mandhara Kesava Bhatta in Tulu in the 16th century—could be closely related to Ezhuthachan's Ramayana. Ezhuthachan used the Grantha based Malayalam script to write his Ramayana, although Vatteluttu writing system was the traditional writing system of Kerala then.

Other versions[edit]

Traditionally, two ancient sources of Ramayana are Valmiki Ramayan and Adhyatma Ramayana, and Tulsidas's Ramcharitmanas (written in Hindi), Kamban's Ramavataram (written in Tamil), and other versions in regional languages are with Valmiki Ramayan as their main source.
