Koodiyattam Performance
During my trip to Irinjalakuda, I got an opportunity to watch a live performance of Koodiyattam. It sounds strange even to myself that it was the first time I was entering the famed koothambalam at Koodalmanikyam temple.

The performance was Sree Rama Pattabhishekam, which was played as a multi-day event (I could watch the first two days). I greatly enjoyed the overall experience - a combination of the ritualistic ambiance inside the koothambalam, the performance, the tone of the few verses that were sung, and most importantly the rhythm of mizhavu.
