Koorkancherry Sree Maheswara Temple, Thrissur district.
Though the presiding deity of the temple is Lord Maheswara (Siva), the festival celebrates the seven-day Thaipooya Mahotsavam dedicated to Subramanya, his son. The spectacular Kavadiyattom, a ritual dance, starts in the morning and nearly 10 groups, each comprising 30 ambalakkavadi and 60 pookkavadi, participate. An ambalakkavadi is a decorated model of a temple, six to 10 feet tall, which a male devotee carries on his shoulder. Pookkavadi is bow-shaped and decorated with flowers. The Kavadiyattom goes on till noon, followed by an elephant procession. Then it is resumed again at night and continues till dawn. A dazzling fireworks display marks the conclusion of the festival.
