Perumpazhuthoor boasts of a High School (since grown to a Junior College) which has brought scholars right from the British Raj era. A Polytechnic Institute has come up here recently.
The Holy Temple of Sree Kandan Sastha (Load Ayyappa in the form of "Vana sastha") is situated at Vadacode near Perumpazhuthoor. The temple is on the side of a two Acre area Forest(Kavu) and a "must visit" pilgrim centre. Its calm and quiet atmosphere brings your mind to a holy and relaxed mood. The peculiarity of the temple is the magic natural water source which will not dry throughout the year. The Major events of the Temple are Mandala-Makaravilakku festival during November to January and Painkuni Uthra Festival in April every Year.
