Thrissur Pooram

Thrissur Pooram 2010 is 24 April, 2010.

Thrissur Pooram is celebrated in the state of Kerala, south India. It is the most colourful temple festival and has devotees and spectators coming in large numbers from all parts of the State and even outside. Thrissur pooram is held in the month of april-may(Medom). Elephants from various neighbouring temples are richly caparisoned and take part in the processions at the Vadakkunnathan temple,Thrisur.

Lending its premises and grounds for this great event, Vadakkunnathan acts only as a mere spectator for this festival.  The most impressive processions are those from the Krishna Temple at Thiruvambadi and the Devi Temple at Paramekkavu. These make a significant event for the  devotees. The celebrations starts in the early hours of the morning and last till the break of dawn on the next day.

Sakthan Thampuran, who was the Maharaja of the Cochin State in the late 1700`s was resposible for introducing this festival. This festival is probably the only festival in kerala that attracts such large masses of people to a single event. Another well known event at the festival is the spectacular display of fire works which last three to four hours. What makes the fireworks in the festival even more grander and colorful is that it is done by two rival groups representing the two divisions of Thrissur Paramekkavu and Thiruvambadi with each given a chance to display their fireworks.These groups also get to display a maximum of fifteen elephants which leads both the parties to secure the best elephants in South India.Various fireworks are also displayed on the elephants.
