Kerala is well known for its art and culture. All districts of kerala are enriched with their own art forms. For our ancestors art was more or less like their life, a part of their living, a part of their own lifestyle. Theyyam is one of those kinds in North Kerala. Theyyam, a colourful ritual dance of Kerala that attributes great importance to the worship of heroes and ancestral spirits, is a socio-religious ceremony. The Theyyam festival usually held in from October to May every year. The colourful pageantry, the enthusiastic crowd and the religious flavour are all worth witnessing. Every village in North Kerala was bound to perform it in connection with the local shrine (Kavu). Theyyams are performed before the shrines. This sacred dance is believed to bring about wellbeing for the society and the family People from different parts of the world come to Northern Kerala to experience this.
