About ochira kali
Ochira Kali is a 2-day festival celebrated at the Ochira Parabrahma Temple in the month of June. It is the time of monsoon rains when the waterlogged paddy fields near the temple become transformed into the venue of the festival. The venue is known as Padanilam (battle zone) where two groups of people, holding sticks instead of swords, perform a mock battle to the rhythmic beat of drums. This exciting event is held to commemorate the historic battle fought between the erstwhile kingdoms of Kayamkulam and Ambalappuzha. Prize money is given to the performers and the festivities end with a grand feast.
