തൃശ്ശൂർ പൂരം 2017

Thrissur Pooram ( തൃശ്ശൂർ പൂരം ) is an annual Hindu temple festival held in Kerala , India . It is held at the Vadakkunnathan Temple in Thrissur . It is the largest and most famous of all Poorams . Thrissur Pooram was the brain child of Raja Rama Varma or famously known as Sakthan Thampuran , the Maharaja

of Cochin ( 1790-1805 ) . Before the start of Thrissur Pooram , the largest temple festival in Kerala was the one - day festival held at Aarattupuzha knows as Arattupuzha Pooram . Temples in and around City of Thrissur were regular participants . One day because of incessant rains , they were late for the Arattupuzha Pooram and were denied access to the Pooram procession . Felt embarrassed by the denial , the temples went to the Sakthan Thampuran and told their story

So in 1798 , he unified the 10 temples situated around Vadakkunnathan Temple and organised the celebration of Thrissur Pooram as a mass festival . He invited temples with their deities to City of Thrissur to pay obeisance to Lord Vadakkunnathan , the presiding deity of the Vadakkunnathan Temple . Sakthan Thampuran ordained these temples into two groups , namely " Paramekkavu side " and " Thiruv ambady side " . The Paramekkavu side consists of besides " Paramekkavu Bagavathy " . 1 Pookattikkara- Kara mukku Baghavathy , 2 Choorakattukara Baghavathy , 3 Chempukkavu Baghavathy , 4 Panemukkumpilly Sastha . Besides Thiruvambady Baghavathy , the Thiruvarmbady side is having 1 Ayyanthole Baghavathy 2 Nethilakkavu Baghavathy 3 Laloor bagav athy 4 Kanimangalam Sastha . The Pooram was to be centered around the vadakkunnathan Temple , with all these temples sending their Pooram s ( the whole procession ) , to pay obeisance to the Shiva , the presiding deity . The Thampuran is believed to have chalked out the program and the main events of the Thrissur Pooram festival
