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.

A lovely location with superb views over the beach, as was the space available in the house gazebo, upstairs balcony, sea facing wooden deck and the private balcony with the bedroom. The food was amazing. Both in quality and in quantity!!. The staff was extremely helpful. We stayed for our honeymoon and caught the bus and went in the sea and all sorts. Sad to leave.
