KOCHI: The High Court has issued strict instructions regarding the participation of elephants in Thrissur Pooram. It is advised to submit a list of all elephants along with their fitness certificates. A court-appointed amicus curiae will examine the elephants, and those with health issues will not be permitted to join the Pooram festivities. On the 17th, the court will decide whether Techikottukavu Ramachandran can participate in Thrissur Pooram.

Thrissur Pooram begins today, with the Kodiyettam (flag hoisting) ceremonies taking place at Paramekkavu and Tiruvambadi temples, which are central to the event, along with eight other participating temples known as component purams.

Tiruvambadi

Kodiyettam will occur between 11:30 AM and 11:45 AM. The flagpole will be prepared by the heirs Thazhathupuraykkal Sundaran and Sushit. The consecrated flag will be handed over to the people by the Melshanthi. Following rituals, the flag will be planted on the flagpole by the locals and the flag will be raised. At 3:30 PM, the Poora Kodi will be hoisted at Naduvilal and Naikkanal, concluding the procession at the Srimoolasthanam of Vadakkunnatha Temple. The procession will then proceed to the western Chira for Aarat before returning.

Paramekkavu

The flag hoisting will occur between 12 noon and 12:15 PM. Family members will prepare a traditional copper flagpole at the Paramekkavu temple, which will be raised by Thattakakkar. Following this, the flag will be hoisted at Palamara and Manikandanal in the temple complex. After the flag hoisting, the procession will commence, proceeding to Vadakkunnathan and culminating with singing at Chandrapushkarni.
