Kottiyoor Festival Kerala

The Kottiyoor Festival is an annual festival of two temples, Akkare Kottiyoor and Ikkare Kottiyoor that are located on either side of the Bavali river in the Kannur district of Kerala. The deity of both these temples is Lord Shiva, thus the festival is dedicated to him. This 28-day long festival has a great cultural and religious importance and is celebrated with great enthusiasm and joy. The festival usually falls in the month of May and June and begins with the Neyattam ritual on the first day. People from all the nearby places come to be a part of this festival and offer prayers to Lord Shiva. It is also known as Kottiyoor Vysakha Mahotsavam and is celebrated to offer prayers to Devi Sati, who burnt herself alive during a yagya. It is believed that Lord Brahma also worships Lord Shiva for the loss of Sati on this day. The whole temple is decorated with grace and vessels of gold and silver and heavy ornaments are brought from the nearby village Manathana.

There is a popular tradition of carrying the idols of Lord Shiva and Sati on decked up elephants and feeding them with great food afterwards that makes it all the more unique and wonderful. Another ritual of pouring tender coconut milk on the idols collected from various parts of Malabar is also performed during the festival. This year, the Kottiyoor Festival will be held from 6 June-2 July and can be visited by booking a flight/bus/train to Kannur. For the cheapest accommodation options near the temple, refer to Goibibo.

Great hotel, great location and good service. The only reason why I have not given it 5 stars is because, the hotel room felt a little small and the hotel access card didn't work properly.
