Pooram originated during the reign of King Sakthan. Earlier Arattupuzha Pooram was the main Pooram in the land. It was considered to be the meeting place of all the Gods in the world. But, once it so happened that, Gods in Trissur could not participate in Arattupuzha Pooram due to heavy rains and floods. So, in order to save the face of his land, the King started a Pooram in Trissur itself. He did it in such a grand scale that it soon occupied the primary slot. But the pity is that even there are no clear documents on its origin.
The famous Ayyappa temple at Aarattupuzha is just 14 kms from Thrissur, and celebrates its annual pooram festival during March.
