Kalamezhuthu pattu

"Kalamezhuthu" is a ritual art of Hindus in Kerala. Kalamezhuthu is performed inside and outside the Temple to worship the deity. In Kalamezhuthu the amazing thing to see is the colourful and artistic portrait of the deity made on the floor using natural powders in different colours. The style of Kalamezhuthu may vary depending upon different communities, the Deity which they worship and the purpose of the Kalamezhuthu. In malayalam Kalamezhuthu means drawing.

After the completion of Kalamezhuthu a song praising god would be performed accompanied with traditional musical instruments of Kerala.

I have collection of more than 70 pictures of Kalamezhuthu...

Below I'm showing a few of them..
