Pattambi Nercha

Pattambi Nercha, the annual feast at Pattambi mosque is a spectacle to behold with its riot of colours and sounds. Held in the memory of a Muslim saint from the Malabar region - Aloor Valiya Pookunjikoya Thangal, the town is illuminated brilliantly and a pageant with traditional musical ensembles like panchavadyam and thayambaka is taken out at night during the festival. About 70-80 tuskers are lined up for the festival. Various art forms are also performed on the banks of the River Bharathappuzha.
