Revathi Pattathanam

Venue: Tali Mahadeva Temple

District: Kozhikode

The wisdom of the Vedas exudes in bounty on the day of Revathi Pattathanam. This event first began in the 14th century at the Thali Mahadeva temple, a legendary temple as ancient as the myth related to the formation of Kerala. The renowned Revathi Pattathanam used to be a seven days long annual congregation of scholars held under the supervision of Zamorins. This is a remarkable annual cultural and intellectual event in Kerala.

The Tali Temple is a marvel in the Kerala style of architecture. It is a remarkable blend of wood and laterite. The intricate brass-relief on the walls of the sanctum-sanctorum and elaborate brass carvings on the wooden roof are quite captivating. Revathi Pattathanam is organized to keep alive memories of the scholars’ meet that used to be held during the reign of the Zamorins (traditional rulers of Kozhikode, formerly Calicut). The event culminates with the conferring of the title Bhatta along with a panakizhi (sachet of money) to the selected scholar.


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.
