PostSubject: Colourful Temple Festivals of Kerala   Mon Jul 09, 2007 12:42 pm

Temple festivals are inexplicably woven through the woof and warp of the lives of Keralites.
There is an ancient Bhagavathy temple at Attukal in the Kaladi ward of the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation. The most important festival in this temple, generally known as Attukal Ponkala, commences on Bharani day in Kumbhom (February-March) and continues for nine days. The festival begins with Thottampattu (a song about Bhagavathy) that goes on during all the nine days. On the ninth day, several thousands of women assemble in the temple compound with ponkala pots and the required quantities of rice and other ingredients for preparing ponkala.
Ettumanoor is located 12 Kms north-east of Kottayam town. The ancient Siva temple here has brought glory and fame to the place.
Myths have it that the Pandavas and the sage Vyasa had worshipped at this temple. The arattu festival of this temple is celebrated on a grand scale on the Thiruvathira day in Kumbham (February-March) every year. Large number of people flock to this temple on the 8th and 10th day of the festival when seven and half elephants made of gold (nearly 13 Kilograms) will be held in public view. The temple, the wealthiest Devaswom in Kerala, has many valuable possessions. The attractions of a Kerala Tourism include its magical festivals, spectacular art forms, spectacular boat races, spicy cuisine and everything else a discerning tourist ask for.
