Alamikkali is a ritual art form that is presented exclusively in Kasaragod district in North Kerala. Originally performed by ‘Alamis’, the soldiers of Tipu’s army to commemorate the Karbala war, a vital event in the history of Islam, today it stands as a proud testimony to the spirit of religious harmony in the region.

Believed to be derived from the Arabic word “Al-ameen,” the art form is performed during Muharram. Characterized by a unique costume, it is performed in mosques and celebrates the message of religious harmony.
