The cultural capital

Thrissur is often referred to as the cultural capital of Kerala due to its rich Hindu traditions, festivals and literary academies. In addition, it is an ideal location for enjoying the vegetarian South Indian cuisine in one of the high quality pure veg restaurants in the city centre. For particularly adventurous travellers, going to Thrissur during the Thrissur Pooram (in April or May) is guaranteed to be a memorable experience.
