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 has been renovated and preserved as a memorial, Kunjan Smarakam. Every year Smarakam celebrates the Navarathri festival in a grand way. 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.
