Lovers of the mighty pachyderm will get to feast their eyes on a veritable pageant of the magnificent creatures at the heart of Kerala.

The Adoor Gajamela forms the cornerstone of the ten-day annual celebration held at the Parthasarathy Temple in Adoor. Giant crowds are witness to the 9 mighty tuskers being paraded, adorned with a plethora of special decorations. This temple, dedicated to Lord Krishna, is home to a great amount of cultural programmes during the festival, making it among the most visited sites in all of Pathanamthitta district.


In Kerala, festival dates are decided in accordance with the Malayalam calendar and the local traditions and customs. We have calculated the festival dates based on these. But there can be changes in the dates according the customs and rituals associated with each place of worship. As such, these should be considered only as approximate dates and have to be confirmed with the local authorities.
