Kappu ketti Bhadrakalipattu(song to praise the
vigorous spirit of Bhadrakali)
It is an antique temple art which is known as Thottam pattu
also. This sacred song can never learned from black and
white but only from oral listening. Kannaki Devi is placed
after kappu kettu from Kodungallur. On the fourth day of
the festival begins the malappuram pattu. It traces the
wedding between Kannaki and Kovilan. At the same time the
natives earnestly submit the garlands in procession to the
temple. On the seventh day of the festival sings the konnuthottupattu.
Kovilan is executed by the Madhura king accusing theft but
Kannaki proves the truth and with her power of chastity
wakes him up from mortality and set fire to the whole Madhura.
Kannaki gets the guise of the Devi and moves to south and
Devi’s thirumudi is brought out for loitering all
over the areas and keeps at the green leaf beautified shed
and starts for days visit to the four locations seeking
for the Darika and blesses the devotees. In the same time
devotees give special offerings and pooja to Devi Kali.
From children to adults do the Urul as offering on the ninth
evening of the festival.
On the ninth festival day morning, the ladies do the special
offer, Ponkala. People from distant places give a lion share
of their presence in the rituals.
