These kinds of Theyyams are included in the performing arts associated with the temples in the northern districts of Kerala, a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs. This modern folk religion is extremely ancient and contains age-old traits. The frisky dances of these Theyyams which represent Gods are some of the important sights during festivals. The dance performed with austerities and wearing dresses, ornaments and crowns create an atmosphere of devotion in the presence of devotees who consider Theyyam itself as a God and they seek blessings from this Theyyam. Tender coconut leaves, bark of areca nut palms and natural colours are used for decoration. It is believed that devils will run away on seeing the Theyyam with its tongue stretched out, protruded eyes and lifted sword.
