The 300 year old Sri Mutharamman Temple is located in Kulasekharapatnam near Thiruchendur in the Thoothukudi district of Tamil Nadu. Devotees come from far and wide as they walk on foot wearing exotic costumes as if they were the incarnations of gods and goddess. On the climatic day, the sea shores of this coastal village turns into a carnival of folk music and dance where devotees in their chosen fancy dresses solicit the grace of and express gratitude for boons granted by the presiding deity Sri Muthramman.
The oddity of the festival is that it is celebrated here as a 12-day function instead of 9 days. Over 30 lakh people attended the festival in 2018. The festival celebrates local history and culture and presents an interesting intersection of folklore, fashion, devotion and celebration. The pronounced colors and activities of the devotees offer photographers an exceptional opportunity to capture the soul of South India.
