Navaratri

Navarathri or Dussera festival is celebrated in the month of purattasi. This festival seems to have  been introduced  to Tamil Nadu by the Mysore rulers. It is celebrated mostly in the towns  or in places connected  with kings and chieftains. Observance of Navarathri  and exhibition  of dolls in their wide variety and colour and costumes is confined to the upper  strata  of society. The common  folk in the villages celebrate  the Puravai Eduppu or festival of horse dolls in the temples of Ayyanar in the summer. This festival  of dolls  has helped to sustain the amazing skill at clay doll-making  in Tamil Nadu. The raw materials used are clay, papier-mache  and paints.
