Pooram was initiated in 1798 through a royal announcement made by the then Raja of Kochi – Rama Varma. Nearly 100 circumspectly chosen gold-caparisoned elephants are paraded for the festival. Special menu of Kerala sadhya is served on banana leaves with 22 different types of curries and condiments.
