special programs

During Navaratri, Hindus worship the divine feminine energy in the form of the goddess Durga, who represents courage, strength, and protection. Each day of Navaratri is dedicated to a different form of the goddess Durga, and the festival culminates on the tenth day with the celebration of Vijayadashami, which commemorates the victory of good over evil.
The word "Arattu" means "holy bath" in Malayalam, and the festival involves a ceremonial procession of the temple deity to a nearby body of water for a ritualistic bath. During the festival, the temple deity is taken out of the temple in a procession, accompanied by music, dance, and chanting. The deity is usually carried on an elephant or other decorated vehicle, and is taken to a nearby river, lake, or sea for a ceremonial bath.
Kalampattu involves the recitation of stories from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana, using song and music. The performers use a variety of musical instruments, such as the chenda, maddalam, ilathalam, and para, to accompany their singing. The stories are usually narrated in Malayalam, the official language of Kerala, and the performances are often held in temple courtyards, as part of temple festivals and other cultural events.
