Theyyam – the form of worshiping gods, goddesses and legendary heroes is based on a rather simple concept; after suitable propitiatory rituals, the god or goddess belonging to a temple becomes temporally manifest in the body of an empowered man (the performer), thereby elevating him to a divine status. Theyyam ceremonies usually take place either within the precincts of a small shrine, usually called Kavu, Kazhakam, Muchilottu, Mundiya, Sthanam, or in the yard of an ancestral house. At times it could be performed in an open space with a temporary shrine called pathi.
