Krishnattom In Kerala

Krishnattam, is another form of dance drama enacted in Guruvayoor Temple depicting the frolics and divinity of Lord Krishna.

The traditional performance lasts for eight days and covers the whole span of Krishna's life from his birth to 'Swargarohanam' (ascension to the heavens) Orchestral accompaniments are Maddalam, Ilathalam and Chengila.

The visual effect is enhanced by varied and colorful facial make-up with larger-than-life-masks, made of lightwood and cloth padding, for certain characters. The characters that do not wear masks have specific facial colours.

The predominant colours used are dark green, flesh tint and deep rose. Most of the characters wear red vests and flowing 'Uthariyams'. The characters of Krishna, Arjuna and Garuda wear dark blue vests.
