Theyyams @ Kannur

Feb 13, 2012   //   by S P   //   Malabar Tourism  //  Comments Off on Theyyams @ Kannur

The Theyyam or Theyyattam is a popular ritual dance of North Kerala, particularly now found in the traditional Kolathunadu, of the present Kannur and Kasargod districts. As a living cult with centuries old traditions, ritual and custom, it embraces almost all castes and classes of Hindu religion in this region. The term Theyyam is an esoteric form of daivam or God. It is a rare combination of dance and music and reflects important features of a tribal culture. There are around 40 Kavu or temples near our home where Theyyam rituals are conducted. Trips can be arranged by Shantitheeram, the exquisite luxury beach homestay @ Kannur.
