Here we list the most imporant festivals & cultural events near to Thrissur.
Sree Ruthira Mahakalikavu Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kaali. Uthralikavu Pooram is the most celebrated event in the region. It is an eight-day celebration highlighted by day and night elephant processions. Traditional musical ensembles like the Panchavadyam and the Pandimelam add rhythm to these processions. The festival also gives a chance for the spectators to enjoy the temple and folk art forms of Kerala.
Vadakkumnathan Temple is one of the oldest temples of Kerala located in the heart of Thrissur city. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is believed that the Vadakkumnathan Temple was built by Parashurama. The temple is really a typical example of Kerala style of architecture as well as has impressive Gopurams (entrance towers) on all four sides each facing north, south, east and west directions.
Maha Shivaratri is the main festival which is celebrated in the temple. Cultural and musical programmes are held in the temple premises. Around one lakh temple lamps are lighted in the festival. The idol of Vadakkumnatha is not taken out for procession.
Anayottam (elephant race) as it is called in Malayalam marks the beginning of the annual Guruvayur festival, celebrated in the month of Kumbham (February-March) at the Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple in Guruvayur, district of Thrissur.
The Guruvayur Temple is one of the most renowned and oldest of all temples in Kerala. Though the winning elephant will not get a gold medal, he will have the honour to carry the Thidambu (the replica of the idol of Guruvayoorappan) on all special occasions for one year
Chinakkathoor Pooram would come alive with performances of the Panchavadyam - the traditional Kerala orchestra - and various art forms like vellattu, theyyam, poothanum thirayum, kaalavela, kuthiravela, aandi vedan, karivela and so on. Tholpavakoothu, a ritualistic shadow puppetry, is another attraction of the festival.
During the Malayalam month of Meenam (March-April) Peruvanam temple in Cherpu attains a special charm and majesty. And the reason is the Peruvanam Pooram, a festival that has a legendary status because of it antiquity. Lord Shiva is the presiding deity of this temple. Legend has it that the present sreekovil (sanctum sanctorum) was originally a tree on which Lord Shiva did tapas (meditation).
It is said that the original form of the festival was different from what it is today. There also happened a break in it conduct due to unknown reasons. Later, it was restarted as two poorams, Peruvanam pooram and Arattupuzha pooram. It is estimated that the new version of the festival at Peruvanam has been in existence for 1428 years.
In the festival, the procession carrying the deity atop a caparisoned elephant along with six other jumbos accompanied by traditional percussion ensembles is a real treat for the eyes and ears. One of the highlights of the pooram is the four-hour long panchari melam (traditional Kerala percussion ensemble) starting past midnight and followed by fireworks.
The annual festival at Arattupuzha is also termed as the mother of all pooram festivals in Kerala, due to its sheer magnitude and grandeur. Visitors from nearby and far off places reach the village of Arattupuzha during the festival days, to be part of this grand festival. The pinnacle of excitement and devotion during the seven-day festival is obviously the last two days. The evening prior to the last day of the festival would have an assembly of caparisoned elephants and staging of percussion ensembles as part of the ceremony called Sasthavinte Melam.
The atmosphere during Sasthavinte Melam would have the brilliance of the many brightly lit traditional lamps and also the huge flame bearing staffs, locally called as theevetti. Once this ceremony is over, by early morning the elephants carrying deities of nearby temples would proceed to the adjoining paddy field for the grand spectacle that would have about 50 odd elephants lined up in front of a cheering crowd.
The venue would soon become electrifying with groups of traditional percussion ensembles comprising Panchavadyam, Pacharimelam and Pandimelam playing their best possible beats and rhythms, while the caparisoned elephants bearing muthukkudas (sequined, glittering umbrellas) and venchamarams (white whisks) make a delightful sight, as they stand patiently and entertain the crowd.
By sunrise, the elephants carrying deities from neighbouring temples that had gathered at the Sree Sastha Temple at Arattupuzha would proceed to the nearby river for the aarattu ceremony. It is a ceremonial cleansing process by immersing the idol in the river accompanied by chanting of mantras and floral offerings. The last to undergo the aarattu would be Lord Ayyappa, the presiding deity of the Sree Sastha temple at Arattupuzha.
The festival held on the premises of the Vadakkumnatha temple, which is a classic example of Kerala style of architecture, is made spectacular by the pageant of 30 caparisoned elephants and kudamattom, a competition involving swift rhythmic changing of brightly coloured and sequined parasols.
Ilanjitharamelam, an amazing percussion ensemble featuring about 250 odd artistes, ushers in tens of thousands of music-lovers, who wave their hands in accordance to the rhythm generated by the chenda, kuzhal, kombu and elathalam (traditional instruments of Kerala). An astounding firework would light up the sky to provide a grand finale to two days of classic entertainment.
The feeding of elephants according to traditional beliefs in Kerala is a unique festival. To witness this one of its kind festival in the world, you have to be in Kerala during the Malayalam month of Karkidakam, which corresponds to June/July. This ritualistic feeding ceremony (locally known as Aanayoottu) takes place inside the premises of the famous Vadakkumnathan Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, which is situated in the heart of Thrissur city. The festival falls on the first day of the month of Karkidakam.
On the festival day, which usually is marked by intermittent rains, elephants are brought inside the premises of the Vadakkumnathan Temple for the special feast. The elephants first pay obeisance to the presiding deity and they themselves are subjected to worship later during the course of the feeding ceremony. Here, the elephants are lined-up in a single row and facing them would be thousands of people in an excited mood to feed the elephants and getting ready with their offerings. The ceremony also is rooted in the belief that worshiping the elephants and giving them delicious and healthy food is a way to propitiate Lord Ganesha, the elephant-faced God, who removes obstacles from one''s pursuits.
