kerala Event- Great Elephant March


The Great Elephant March (Jan 17-20)
The Great Elephant March, with events centered, successively, in Trochyr, Alleppey and Trivandrum. Created for visitors, it stages the caparisoned elephant-and-umbrella display of Trissur Pooram; the boat race of 100-oared vallams normally associated with Nehru Trophy Boat Race of Alapuzha; and the martial arts of Kerala, one of which has a center in Triuvananthapuram. There is also a most unusual display of masked dance, some preformed by artistes in towering headdresses, whose origins could go back to the Stone Age.
