Paramekkavu temple is at Thrissur. One of the participants of Thrissur pooram. Bhagawathi is the chief diety. Thiruvambadi is another main participant temple of Thrissur pooram. These two temples arrange caparisoned elephants in pooram and this may be the main spectacular event of this festival of Kerala. 'Kudamattom' a display of umbrella is an interesting item.
