Thrissur: Thrissur Pooram, one of the major festivals in the State, will be celebrated on Wednesday.

The ‘Madathilekku Varavu’ ceremony, in which the ‘thidambu’ (idol) of the Thiruvambadi Bhagavathy is taken from the Thiruvambadi temple to Naduvil Madom at Pazhayanadakkavu, west of the Thekkinkad Maidan, will begin at 7.30 a.m. Thiruvambadi Ramabhadran will bear the idol. Pachavadyam, led by percussion maestro Annamanada Parameswara Marar, will begin at 10 a.m. ‘Madathil Varavu’, one of the important ceremonies of the day, will begin at 12 noon. Thiruvambadi Sivasundar will bear the idol then. As the procession bearing the idol reaches the ‘Sreemoola Sthanam’ of the Vadakkunatha temple, Pandimelam, led by maestro Mattannur Sankarankutty, will replace Panchavadyam.

The procession of the Paramekkavu temple will begin at 12 noon. Paramekkavu Sree Padmanabhan will bear the ‘thidambu’ of the Paramekkavu Bhagavathy. Ilanjithara Melam, led by veteran percussionist Peruvanam Kuttan Marar, will be staged at the Vadakkunatha Temple at 2 p.m. The procession of the Paramekkavu contingent will move through the southern entrance of the Vadakkunatha Temple towards a statue before the Thrissur Corporation office.
