Thootha Pooram

Category - Festivals

Thootha Pooram

A sparkling spectacle to behold, Thootha Pooram marks the end of the pooram (festival gathering) season in the Malabar region of Kerala. Situated on the banks of the Thootha River, Sree Thootha Bhagavathy temple is one of the main Bhadra Kali temples in Malabar.

The festivities are embellished by the traditional percussion ensembles comprising Panchavadyam, Pacharimelam and Pandimelam. Famous for its elephant pageantry, the caparisoned elephants bearing muthukkudas (sequined, glittering umbrellas) and venchamarams (white whisks) make a delightful sight. A real visual treat, the grand pooram winds up each year with the kaala vela (procession of decorated motifs of bulls).
