Kerela

Built around a hillock called the Thekkinkadu Maidan, is the Thrissur city. As Kerela’s cultural and spiritual center, it offers an exceptional display of festivals and historical and natural sights, in addition to religious experiences. It has traditionally been a center of learning from ancient times and enjoys a thriving cultural tradition dating back to centuries.

The biggest of all pooram festivals held in Kerala, ‘the pooram of all poorams’, is the pooram at Thrissur. This is where one can witness one of the largest assemblies of people and elephants. True to its position as the cultural capital of Kerela, Thrissur city also hosts the largest alternative film festival in South Asia, the ViBGYOR Film Festival.
