Kerala Heritage

KeralaKerala's rich culture can be best witnessed by experiencing its festivals that are celebrated year round. These colourful occasions showcase Kerala's legacy and more often are intertwined withthe many religious beliefs. Kerala's multi -culturalism is reflected in the various festivals belonging to different faiths. Kerala's culture is distinct and unique and that has made it popular to tourists from around the world.

Onam is Malayali's favourite and most colourful festival, heralding the harvest season in the months of August- September. People celebrate with flowers, lights, feasts, fireworks and games. Cultural shows are held throughout the state during Onam. The dance is a beautiful blending of color, dance, music, drama, and expressions. In a sense, a lot of the fame that the state has gained is mainly due to the popularity of this dance form. Other dance forms of Kerala are Krishnanattom, Mohiniyattom, Thullal, Koodiyattom, Kolkkali, Thiruvathirakali, Kakkarishi Natakom, Oppanna, and Chavittunatakom.

In temple festivals, Thrissur Pooram at Thrissur is the most popular, where 30 caprisoned elephants, exhilarating percussion ensemble, colorful umbrellas atop elephants, magnificient fireworks combine to create a virtual feast for the senses. The Chandanakkudam at Bheemapalli in the capital Thiruvanathapuram is the most revered of Muslim festivals. People offer money in earthen pots at the tomb of Bheema Devi, a devout pilgrim who came to Kerala from Mecca centuries ago.

Infact, everyday in some corner of the state, festivities are in full swing celebrating the facets of a culture that has stood the test of time.
