Here’s your chance to watch a really amazing festival, come, attend chamayavilakku, the annual festival at Kottankulangara devi temple. Hundreds of beautiful ‘women’ strolling on the temple premises on the festival night may not surprise you in the first instance until you realise that they are men in drags as part of a special ritual. During night, these 'damsels’, holding traditional lamps, walk in procession to the temple to the accompaniment of traditional orchestra; a memorable sight indeed. The festival falls on the 10th and 11th of the Meenam month on the the Malayalam calendar.
