Thrissur Pooram one of the most famous and main festival of Kerala State was celebrated with full vigor and joy despite of rainfall. Though it was raining heavily but the lakhs of devotees who were gathered at Thekkinkadu maidan and the city streets enjoyed the rain while celebrating the festivals.

Though hearts of pooram aficionados sank when the rain clouds gathered in the morning, the rain took a break for major events such as Madathil Varavu, Illanjithara melam, and Kudamattom.The 30-hour event provides a heady mix of age-old rituals, fun, colour, and music. Anything is permitted except tampering with the tradition.

There was heavy rush to watch the Kudamattom, the spectacular show in which parasols of myriad numbers in numerous designs and colors were exchanged by people atop the elephants. Thiruvambadi and Paramekkavu devaswoms participate in the friendly competition.

The city has been in a festive mood since the opening of the pooram exhibition. However, the “sample fireworks”, the first round of fireworks in connection with the pooram, two days ago was cancelled due to rain.
