Thrissur Pooram 2017, Thrissur Pooram Festival Kerala-Goibibo

Thrissur Pooram is one of the popular festivals of Kerela, which is celebrated at the Vadakkunnathan temple. It is an important festival that is celebrated on Pooram, when the moon rises with Pooram star in the Melan month of Malayalam calendar. This colorful festival has been celebrated for the last many decades and has a special place in the history of the culture too. The roots of this festival dates back to the 17th century that is celebrated with great grandeur and glee in the present times too. The celebrations start with 15 elephants marching from Thiruvambadi temple to Vadakkunnathan temple carrying Lord Krishna’s idol. There are around 80 drummers playing classical music in the background and people dancing in joy.

This mass festival witnesses visitors and deities from nearby places that make the event a wonderful affair. In the evening, a competition called ‘Kudamattom’ begins where people carrying colorful umbrellas sit on the elephants and exchange their umbrellas and music is played in the background to make it more interesting. After this ceremony, the idols are placed on the elephants and sent back to the temples. This wonderful festival is a treat to the eyes of the spectators who love to be a part of it. This year, Thrissur Pooram will fall on 5th May 2017 and shall be visited to feel the magic of this event.
