Kunchan Smarakam, Palakkad

Regarded as the creator of Ottan Thullal, Kunjan Nambiar is said to have created this art form on being ridiculed for falling asleep during a Chakyarkoothu performance. He created history with his brand new dance form - a solo dance and a classical satirical art form, which always has an absorbent storyline relevant to contemporary issues.

The poet’s house in Killikurissimangalam was renovated and preserved as a memorial, Kunjan Smarakam. Every year Smarakam celebrates the Navarathri festival in a grand way. On the fifth day of May, the birthday of the poet is celebrated with much fanfare as Kunchandinam.

Killikurissimangalam is situated in the village of Lakkidi in Palakkad district.
