Temple Festivals
 
     
Anayoottu at Vadakkumnathan Temple

During the Malayalam month of Karkidakam (June/July), the Vadakkumnathan Temple located at the heart of Thrissur will become a venue for the traditional feast for elephants (Anayoottu). According to traditional beliefs in Kerala, feeding of elephants is considered to be a unique festival.

On the festival day, elephants are brought inside the temple premises for the special feast. At first the elephants are made to worship the temple deity and then they are lined-up in a single row. In front of the elephants, thousands of people will be gathered to feed them and to get the blessings (It is considered that offering food to elephants indirectly is offering food to Lord Ganesha, who removes obstacles from one's pursuits)

The feast basically consists of sugarcane, rice, ghee, coconut and jaggery. The feeding session starts with an offering by the chief priest of the temple.
