A 10-day festival with full-night Kathakali performances and a procession of 40 ornamented elephants.
Held on Ashtamudi Lake, this is the most prestigious boat regatta in the Kollam region.
This one-day festival is dedicated to the popular Keralan goddess Bhagavathy. It’s famous for its kootiattam (traditional Sanskrit drama) ritual and a spectacular procession of larger-than-life effigies.
An unusual festival event in Chavara, 15km north of Kollam, where local men dress as women and carry lamps to the temple.
