Trichur Pooram 2015 - Highlights
This year's Pooram was grand, as millions witnessed the event. More and more people - particularly foreigners - are turning up to see this glorious event, which is getting more and more exposure in the Media. The Panchavadam of Madathil Varavu was superb. It was equally matched by the Ilinjithara Pandi Melam. Kudamattom was simply out of this world, as one of the most beautiful sights in the world ( as per UNESCO ) became more beautiful, with the incorporation of LED umbrellas. Foreign tourists have gone up by 100%. Also domestic tourists.
This is the biggest gathering in Asia and the crowd is estimated at > one million. It is the duty of Indian Tourism to promote this grand cultural festival !
