Nilamperoor Padayani
 Story Dated: Saturday, March 7, 2015 9:50 hrs IST 
Venue:   The Bhagavathikkavu Temple  , Nilamperoor village, Kuttanad

The Bhagavathikkavu   ( Bhagavathi   Temple) at Nilamperoor village in Kuttanad is famous for the  Padayani   festival held here. One important feature of the Padayani   festival is the ceremonial making of figures representing mythological heroes ( Kolamkettu  ).

The figures are then taken on a dance procession ( Kolamthullal)  . The central characters of the  ‘kolams’   are of Siva, Bhima, Ravana etc. The festival begins at the Pooram asterism according to the Malayalam calendar and lasts for seventeen days. The last day, which falls on the Pooram day according to the calendar is the most auspicious and glorious. During the Ezhunnellippu   (procession) the  kolams   are towed on carts while smaller kolams are carried by people. These kolams are taken on procession with great rejoicing and music. Fireworks are the grand finale to the occasion. Later, the kolams are brought before the temple and after traditional rites they are placed at a designated spot in the temple.
