Elanthoor: Leaving the audience mesmerised, the Anthara-Yakshi performed on the fifth day of Padayani at the Elanthoor Kavu on Friday.

Accompanied by other Padayani kolams, the Anthara-Yakshi kolam’s presentation was magnificent with spectacular and distinctive hand-body moves.

After the kalari vandanam, the Shiva Kolam entered the stage followed by Ganapathi, Sundara-Yakshi, Marutha, Kalan and Bhairavi.

On Saturday, Arakki-Yakshi, which is entirely different from other kolams in style of presentation and appearance, enthralled the audience.

Elanthoor Kavu is a rare place where one can witness Yakshi kolams of various styles.

Along with Padayani, presentations criticising unhealthy social practices were also staged here.
