By

Every year, in the month of Meenam (March-April), a ten day Arattu festival is celebrated at the Janardhana Swamy Temple in Kerala's beach town of Varkala. The festival starts with a Kodiyettam flag hoisting ceremony, and ends with a procession of five decorated elephants through the streets. During the forth and fifth days of the festival, the celebrations include all night long performances such as traditional Kathakali dancing. These colorful photos show the splendor of the temple festival.
