The Great Trichur Pooram !

In Kerala festival dates are determined by the Malayalam Astro Calender. Delta Leonis or Pooram day of Mesha or Aries is the day of Thrissur Pooram, one of the greatest festivals in India. 10 temples participate and it is a glorious sight in Trichur.

A heady mixture of pomp and pageantry, Trichur Pooram is arguably the most popular festival in India. More than 50 elephants and lakhs of people gather around the central Thekkinkattu Maidan. A spectacular pageant of 30 caparisoned elephants and Kudamattom, a swift changing of the colored parasols mark the event. Great fireworks light up the sky to  provide a grand finale to 36 hours of classic entertainment.

Here we are giving some photos and videos of the event and it is for you to judge about this grand event !
