Koodalmanikyam Utsavam
 

Koodalmanikyam Utsavam is celebrated at the Koodal Manikyam temple dedicated to Lord Bharatha, brother of Lord Rama, located 23km south west of Thrissur. The eleven daylong annual festival falls in the Malayalam month Medam i.e in April-May. It begins with the 'kodiyettam' (flag hoisting) on the very next day after the Thrissur pooram. The major attraction of the festival is the 'Shiveeli' displaying seventeen caparisoned elephants along with Panchari Melam and Panchavadhyam. A prominent feature of this festival is 'Brahmakalasam', a unique ritual offered to the deity on all the 11 days of the festival. The utsavam ends with 'aarattu' (holi bath of the idol of the diety). Performances of traditional art forms such as Ottam Thullal, Kathakali, Koodiyattam etc are conducted during the festival days.
