What to expect
Your tour starts with pickup in Kannur for the journey to village temples (kavu) or ancestral HIndu homes where Theyyam is performed. Theyyam takes place as a part of annual temple festivals, and you can expect three to five different types of Theyyam at one temple. Witness the preparation of Theyyam costumes (photos are allowed), and then see the performances themselves, the important ritual part of event. You'll be able to rest at the temple or house before continuing to experience the other Theyyams performed in the same place and interacting with performers and villagers. If you select the afternoon departure time when booking, you might have an opportunity to see a fire Theyyam, only performed at night (depending on availability). Then return to Kannur to end your tour.
