Category - Kerala 365

Kootta Marutha

Padayani is a popular ritual artform in Kerala. Padayani performances are usually conducted at night in Bhadrakali temples. The rituals are a symbolic act for pleasing the Goddess Bhadrakali whose fury remains unabated even after her victory over the mythical demon, Darikan. 

The duration of the festivals varies from 7 to 28 days according to the number of villages participating and organising it. There are different kinds of Padayani. Kootta Marutha is one among them. It differs from other Kolams in its style and costume.
