Neelamperoor Padayani

Neelamperoor Padayani is the annual festival celebrated during the month of September at Palli Bhagavathy Temple in Neelamperoor, 16 km from Kottayam. The main highlight of the festival is the ritualistic dance, padayani. The performers wear colourful masks and spectacular headgears and a rhythmic dance called Thothakali is performed in front of the fire accompanied with drumbeats and traditional music. As a part of the padayani, a colourful procession is carried out in the night carrying the effigies of mythological characters like Bhima, Ravana, etc . The major highlight and attraction of the procession is the display of the huge swan which is about 45 feet high.
