Event Overview

About the Tour :
Pooram (pronounced [puːɾam]) is an annual festival, which is celebrated in temples dedicated to goddesses Durga or Kali held especially in Valluvanadu area and other adjoining parts of north-central Kerala (Present Palakkad, Thrissur and Malappuram districts) after the summer harvest.

Named as “the most spectacular festival event in the planet” by the UNESCO, Thrissur Pooram called the pooram of all the poorams, is the biggest festival held in the state of Kerala. It is celebrated on the month of “medam” (mid April to mid May) according to the Malayalam Calendar. Thrissur Vadakkunathan Temple is the host temple where the festival is takes place but the pooram is conducted by two other temples, Paramekkavu Bhagavathy and Thiruvambadi Bhagavathy forming the western and eastern group respectively with the presence of other small temples. The two temples conduct the festival in a competitive manner, thus making the festival a grand affair. The festival is well known for its magnificent display of fireworks.
