[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Festivals of Kerala are like jewels in its crown that stand out for their beauty and uniqueness..

This is shot during the KOLLAM POORAM festival.
Kollam Pooram is one of the most colourful festivals of Kerala, India. Kollam Pooram attracts large number of people from all parts of the State. The Kollam Pooram, organised in connection with the annual festival of the Asramam Sri Krishnaswamy Temple, will be held at the Asramam Maidanam in the month of April. Kollam Pooram has now assumed the status of a national festival attracting tourists in large numbers.
For the `kudamattom', 30 tuskers split into two groups of 15 each representing the Thamarakulam Sri Mahaganapathy Temple team and the Puthiyakavu Bhagawathy Temple team. The `kudamattom' was held to the beats of a traditional `melam'. The pooram was followed by a spectacular show of fireworks.

Thank you.
