TPM - 038 - Trichur Pooram Festival, Kerala

Stock Image No: TPM 038
Trichur Pooram Photo collection 2007 : 37
This festival was introduced by Sakthan Thampuran, the Maharaja of the erstwhile Cochin State in the late eighteenth century. Perhaps, there is no other festival in Kerala that draws such an unbelievable number of people to a single event. However Vadakkunnathan is a mere spectator at this festival, lending its premises and grounds for the great event.
