About Mandala Utsavam

 

A well-known temple dedicated to Goddess Durga, the Lokanarkavu Temple has awesome ancient importance as Thacholi Othenan, the mythical martial hero of Vadakanpattu, used to worship here each day. Located round 5kms away from Vadakara in Kozhikode, the temple celebrates two annual fairs, one within the Malayalam month of Vrischikam and the alternative in the month of Meenam.

 

This most important festival held inside the month of Vrischikam mid-November to mid-December, referred to as Lokanarkavu Utsavam lasts for 41 days. The competition is locally known as Mandalavilakku Festival or Mandala Utsavam. One of the particular capabilities of the competition is that it is the only temple where a folk dance referred to as Thacholikali much like Kalaripayattu, the martial art shape is accomplished.  

 

The Pooram pageant held within the month of Meenam March-April is for eight days. The festival starts with Kodiyettam and concludes with Arattu. The primary highlight of this competition is the Poorakkali, a ritual art shape completed in Bhagavathy Temples and Poorapattu.
