THAIPOOYAM MAHOTSAVAM 2024

The festival will be celebrated on 26th, Jan 2024 at Koorkancherry, Thrissu, Kerala. The Thaipooyam Mahotsavam Festival pulls you in with the pulsating beats of the chenda (drums) while the cymbals punctuate every movement of the dancing devotees bearing the kavadis. The exuberant colours and frenzy induced by the spirited performance of the devotees charges the atmosphere with a mystical energy as thousands congregate here. The event is the Thaipooyam Festival of the Koorkancherry Sree Maheswara Temple, celebrated in January / February in reverence of Lord Subrahmanya, son of Lord Shiva.

The Kavadiyattom performances which showcase a rich vibrancy of colours is one of the major attractions of this festival. The 'kavadi' is a richly decorated wooden arch that is carried on the shoulders. The proceedings begin in the morning where performances such as ambalakkavadi (temple) and pookkavadi (flowers) are formed on the basis of the shape of the kavadi. Fireworks mark the end of the festival and the memories created are priceless.
