The Culture and Festivals of Kerala

Kerala is a very special place not only in respect of beauty but also in terms of culture and festivals. There are many   that not only offer siteseeing but also to witness the cultural programs and festivals in Kerala. To name a few, Kerala boat race, Attukal Pongala festival, Thrissur Pooram festival, etc. are some of the very famous events which are visited by tourists from far off places.
 
Kerala Boat race or Vallamkali is held in the month of August. Fierce races and water carnivals erupt every year on the backwaters of Kerala. It’s a dramatic spectacle to watch all the boatsmen acting in unison and the immense team spirit among them. They hold the audiences spell bound and amazed.
 
Attukal Pongala festival is the only temple festival in the world where hundreds of women assemble together to cook offer the pudding to the goddess in the Attukal temple.
 
The brightest and the most spectacular festival in Kerala is the Thrissur Pooram festival. It is celebrated in the month of Medom ie during the months of April and May. This festival is a grand assembly of Gods and Goddesses in and around Thrissur. The festival takes place in the Vadakumnathan temple premises where caparisoned elephants are accompanied by grand assemblies of Chenda mela and pancha vadyam (drums and other instruments). The elephants look majestic and the whole setup is a treat to watch. The processions and rituals go on continuously for 36 hours without stopping. A spectacular show of fireworks takes place during this festival.

Valiyaparamba is a perfect holiday spot in Kasargod with transient spectacle of lush, swaying coconut groves and paddy fields that cover the quaint countryside. Travelers can watch the local citizens fishing busily and also learn to cast a line.  The backwater is fed by four rivers and has scores of miniature islets, fine shorelines and lush vegetation of coconut and areca nut copses, scattered randomly all the way through. . The longest island, Valiyaparamba, stretches about 24 k from which the backwater derived its name. Valiyaparamba backwater is also in proximity to the Bekal fort, a renowned landmark which is the ultimate delight of archeologists and historians.
