At midnight the Arattupuzha Pooram fireworks show start, these fierworks are so close that small pieces from them are falling down all around you. The smoke also can get rather thick
Along this long dark temple road there are also venders set up selling their goods. It's about a 30 minute walk to where the taxis are parked, but it's a very interesting walk with all of the active all around you.
This festival is the oldest and most extravagant of all the poorams celebrated in Kerala, thus is may rightly be called ‘big daddy’ of festivals. The festival is celebrated at the famous Arattupuzha temple in Thrissur district of Kerala. The temple is dedicated to Lord Ayyappa.
