Thirumandhamkunnu Temple, Malappuram

A procession makes its way to the river, led by a decorated tusker, with devotees depicting the old legends dancing and chanting fervently the entire way. It all leads to the arrival of a Vellathiri in the Pooram ground to give audience to the Malayankutty, the headman of the Pana tribal community. There are fireworks, dances and widespread celebrations for 11 days. These are some of the colourful visuals from the annual pooram festival held at Thirumandhamkunnu Temple at Angadipuram in Malappuram district dedicated to Goddess Durga. The poojas held here are said to date back to the 16th century, and to this day, devotees congregate to this site in Malappuram district to pay homage and seek blessings.
