Kole Padam in Thrissur
The cultural capital of Kerala,  Thrissur is the abbreviated anglicized form of the Malayalam word "Thrissivaperur" which means the town of the "Sacred Siva". The town is built on an elevated ground, at the apex of which is the famous "Vadakkumnathan" Temple. A place of great antiquity, Thrissur was also known as "Vrishabhadipuram"  in ancient days.

Thrissur district in the present form was formed on July 1, 1949, with the headquarters at Thrissur City. Thrissur is known as the cultural capital of Kerala, and the land of Poorams. The district is famous for its ancient temples, churches, and mosques. Thrissur Pooram is the most colourful and spectacular temple festival in Kerala.
