Ochira Kali Festival Kerala

Ochira Kali Festival is an annual festival celebrated at Ochira Parabrahma temple, Kollam . This 2-day festival commemorates the historic medieval fight of KayamKulam in Ochira. A mock battle is organised in lieu of the battle fought and people participate in the same while standing in knee deep water and doing martial arts. Some people take part in the mock battle while others choose to be the audiences and watch the battle. The event takes place usually in the Malayalam month of Midhunam with over 52 martial experts from nearby places that stand in the mud water with their swords, shields and headgears. It is one of the unique battles that takes place according to the sound of drums where both the sides get equal chances of defeating each other.

The battle is fought in a very traditional way and with all the rituals that include starting the battle only after sighting the Sri Krishna parunthu. A procession of Lord Shiva being carried on a Vrushab Vahan is also carried out during the festival that makes it all the more amazing and enjoyable. The battle on the second day is continued in the same manner as it was done on the first day and after it’s over, winners are felicitated with gifts and prizes. There is a big cattle fair also organised during the festival. This year, Ochira Kali Festival will be held from 15-16th June at the Ochira Parabrahma Temple, Kollam and shall be visited to feel the charm of its uniqueness.
