Othera Patayani

 

Venue: Puthukulangara Devi Temple

Location: Othara

District: Pathanamthitta

Othara Patayani is a ten day annual festival held in the Puthukulangara Devi Temple in Pathanamthitta district. The festival is marked by the presentation of Patayani, a vibrant ritual art form.

One of the highlights of this festival is the appearance of the Bhairavi Kolam which is made of 1001 painted areca nut fronds and it makes for a spectacular event during the festival.

The Patayani performance starts with the beating of the Thappu drums, a Patayani percussion instrument. This is followed by rituals such as Pula dance and Thavadi. Following this all the kolams get ready for the dance.
