Thirumandhamkunnu Pooram(Malayalam: തിരുമാന്ധാംകുന്ന് പൂരം) is an important temple festival of Central MalabarKeralaIndiaThriumandhamkunnu Temple is one of the three important Bhagavathi temples of Kerala, the others being Kodungallur and Panayannarkavu. Daily pooja attracts thousands of devotees.

The idol of the Bhagavathi was taken out of the sanctum sanctorum on a caparisoned elephant for a holy bath called ‘arattu,’ accompanied by elephants, nagaswaram, and chendamelam. The ‘arat’ will continue for 10 days. Thousands of people lined up on both sides of the road for a close glimpse of the deity as the procession was taken out, marking the ‘Poorappurappadu.’[6] The main event of this festival is Aarattu. The same is performed 21 times, in a sequence of one in the morning and one in the evening, for ten days, and the final Aarattu on the eleventh day evening. On the tenth day evening is Pallivetta.

The festival lasts for 11 days from Makayiram star in Meenam (March, April). There is evidence to prove that the pooram festival has a history going back to the early decades of the 16th century in the palm leaf records of Calicut University. People from different parts of the State have started reaching Angadipuram to see this.

On Pooram day at midnight, there is a ceremonial meeting between Valluvakkonathiri, the king of the erstwhile kingdom of Valluvanadu, and Malayankutty, the head of the Pana community who comes to the Pooram ground on a palanquin. It is known as Panante Varavu. This commemorates the religious harmony and the help rendered by the tribal chieftain to the Raja in bygone days. On the twelfth day, from morning to evening there will be the performance of folk from Chavittukali. Ottamthullal, Paadhakom, Chakyar Kooth, Nagyarkouth, ThayambakaMelam, cultural programs etc. are performed during the festival days.
