About The Tour

Theyyam is a famous ritual art form that originated in North Kerala which brings to life the great stories of state. Theyyam (Teyyam,Theyam, Theyyattam ) is a popular ritual form of worship of North Malabar in Kerala, predominant in the Kolathunadu area  and also in South Canara and Kodagu of Karnataka as a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions. The performers of Theyyam have a very important role in the festival. People of these districts consider Theyyam itself as a God and they seek blessings from this Theyyam. A similar custom is followed in the Mangalore region of neighbouring Karnataka known as Bhuta Kola. Theyyam is much deeper than we can understand. To understand Theyyam, one has to understand the origin of it. This tour will be covering different rituals of Theyaam in many temples. We will also be covering kalaripayyatu.
