The annual, week-long festival of Sree Viswambhara Temple, Kottakkal, was a real feast of dance, drama, music and percussion. The most colorful and interesting of the many cultural programs were five night-long Kathakali recitals staged by eminent artistes. Apart from Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Carnatic music, and Thayambaka were also performed.
