Neelamperoor Padayani

Neelamperoor Padayani is held at the precincts of the beautiful temple of Goddess Bhagavathy at Neelamperoor near Kottayam. Padayani, literarily means rows of army. Padayani is a symbolic victory march of goddess Kali after vanquishing Darika. A colourful and spectacular Ketukazcha procession is carried out, with effigies of mythological characters.

The procession is conducted at night and in its course towards the temple; it is accompanied by the reverberating beats emanating from several drums (Chenda) along with clanging of Cymbals that fills the air with a captivating rhythm.
