Interested in Kerala temples but want to see something different? The rituals at the Parassinikadavu Muthappan temple do not follow the conventional Brahminical form, but instead suit a non-Vedic folk deity. In this temple located on the banks of the Valapattanam River, the customary offerings are fish, meat and toddy.
The principal deity, Sree Muthappan, is a manifestation of two mythical characters called Thiruvappana and Vellattam. The deity is worshiped in a ritual enactment of both of these characters through a traditional dance known as Muthappan Theyyam. A rare and enchanting glimpse into a lesser known aspect of Kerala temple culture.
