Fireworks are part of the Kerala traditions but the temple ones are unique
Thrissur Pooram (festival) in April or early May is the venue of the largest fireworks display in Kerala. Traditions, age old customs, elephants with pomp and show all add to the festival's fireworks display.
Biggest, loudest, grandest temple festival of Kerala
Feted as the mother of all festivals, Thrissur Pooram is undeniably the most colourful temple festival of Kerala. Percussion meets pomp with elephant parade, fighting deities and pride all make it a spectacle like no other.
Kaikottikkali is a traditional dance by the women in their homes for Onam celebrations. Deep clapping of palms in melody with articulated and measured steps and jumps in tune with the singing by the players themselves constitute the play.
