Janardhana Temple: the Vishnu Temple (Vishnugudi) and the Janardhana Temple (Janardhanagudi) are located at Punchavayal, near Panamaram, in Wayanad district. The style of sculptures and a stone edict on a wall of the Janardhana Temple in old Kannada script show that the temples might have been built during the reign of the Hoysala or Vijayanagara dynasties in the Deccan plateau from the 12th to 14th centuries. Nearly 300 intricate carvings on the huge stone pillars, including the sculpture of a fishing man, a primitive war scene featuring tuskers, a stone edict in old Kannada script, figures of Jain deities, and sculptures of the ‘Dashavathara’ are the major attractions at the temples.

mRNA vaccine: The mRNA (messenger RNA) is one such vaccine that injects pieces of mRNA into human cells in order to get them the produce pathogen antigens. The mRNA vaccines function differently from traditional vaccines. Traditional vaccines stimulate an antibody response by injecting a human with antigens. mRNA vaccines inject a fragment of the RNA sequence of a virus directly into the cells, which then stimulate an adaptive immune response mRNA fragment is a specific piece of the virus that carries instructions to build the antigen of the virus. An advantage of RNA vaccines is that they stimulate cellular immunity. Unlike DNA vaccines, mRNA vaccines are more fragile as the molecules degrade within minutes when exposed to the outside environment, hence they need to be stored at extremely low temperatures.
