Thrissur Pooram had been an annual Hindu festival happened at the Vadakkunnathan Temple from Kerala in India. It was conducted at the time when there was a rising sun with the Pooram Star. According to the Malayalam Calendar, this would happen only in the month of Medam. It was a very well-known and one of the largest as well as greatest Poorams in the Malayalam State. The history dates back to the 5th Century C. E. whereby all the temples surrounding the present city Trissur were celebrating them individually as well as participated at the function in Aarattupuzha under the name of Arattupuzha Pooram.
The Maharaja of Cochin, Sakthan Thampuran or Raja Raja Varma was the Kingmaker and the brain behind the Unification of this event. In one such Arattupuzha Pooram event, owing to the incessant rains, the surrounding contenders were late to the occasion. They were denied access as they were not on time. They were very upset and went to arbitration with the King. To pull over a curtain to the procrastination, the Emperor in 1798 joined the ten temples situated around the Vadakkunnathan Temple and made the Pooram function as a grand celebration. Lord Vadakkunnathan, the central deity of the temple was the one whom the surrounding priests from the nearby temples paid obeisance. Sakthan Thampuran had classified the temples into two sectors.
One sect was "Paramekkavu side" or the Eastern Side led by the Paramekkavu Bagavathi Temple at Thrissur Swaraj Round. The members were Choorakkottukavu Bhagavathy Temple, Chembukkavu Bhagavathy Temple, Paramekkavu Bagavathi Temple, Panamukkumpally Sastha Temple, and Pookattikkara - Karamukku Baghavathy Temple. The other group was the Western Side or "Thiruvambady side" captained by Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple at Shoranur Road. The constituents include Laloor Bhagavathy Temple, Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple, Sree Karthyayani Temple at Ayyanthole, Kanimangalam Sastha Temple, and Nethilakkavu Baghavathy Temple. Captain Temple was only at a separation of half a kilometre.
The devotion began with the flag hoisting or Kodiyettam that happened before seven days the main event. It has followed by the display of fireworks and Caparisons at the first round. Next was the religious fest known as the Pooram. Finally, the bursting of crackers takes place along with the concluding ceremony. There were many controversies, including the death of many people owing to the mishaps created by the elephants brought out for the fest or during the crack burst.
