Venue: Kanathoor Nalvar Bhoothasthanam
Providing a platform for almost 40 theyyams to perform together Kanathoor Nalvar Bhoothasthanam is undoubtedly a must watch for all those who love the pomp and richness of Theyyam. Held in the month of December this prominent Theyyam festival of the Kanathoor village in Kasaragod stages the Theyyam of the mother deity as the leading one. The costumes and paintings of the body remind one of an outburst of colours. The visual beauty and the incessant music would transform the onlookers to a different level, almost trance-like state.
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.
