While the rest of Kerala has its fair share of celebrations, untouristed, slightly chaotic Thrissur is the cultural cherry on the festival cake, with a seemingly endless list of energetic festivities. Centred around a large park (known as the 'Round') and a Hindu temple complex, Thrissur worked as a second capital for the Cochin royal family during the 16th century, and is also home to a Nestorian Christian community whose denomination dates to the 3rd century AD.
