SRI RAMA TEMPLE AT TRIPRAYAR

Festivals

Ekadashi in Vrischikam (November- December) and pooram in Meenam (March-April) are the two annual festivals conducted in the temple.  Ekadasi celebrations start on Dasami day itself when Ayyappa is taken in procession.  This shows the importance of Ayyappa whose temple it was before the installation of Sri Rama.  On Ekadasi day, Sri Rama is taken in procession with as many as 21 elephants participating.  It is an occasion for devotion and pageantry attracting thousands from far and near.  

The seven-day Pooram festival begins on the Makiram asterism in Meenam (March-April) and ends on the pooram asterism.  There is no flag-hoisting ceremony here-in fact there is no flag-staff itself-to herald the annual utsavam.  The festival is part of the famous Arattupuzha pooram festival in which over a hundred elephants took part until a generation ago.  Now with the change of times, the number of elephants has come down.  But there is no diminution in the rituals or in the pageantry.
