Theyyam in Kannur, Kerela

The area of Kerela we were visiting is known for its elaborate form of worship called Theyyam. We got up before sunrise to join the small crowd who had gathered at the temple. 

The performers went through various phases of becoming more and more elaborately decorated. The belief is that the ritual enables them to become the gods, and the audience worshiped them as such.
