THRISSUR: The famed Machad Mamankam also known as ‘Machad Kuthira Vela’, one of the major festivals of Valluvanad, was celebrated at Thiruvanikkavu Temple at Wadakkancherry, near here, on Tuesday with fervour and pomp.

Processions carrying huge models of horses (poikkuthira) made of bamboo planks and hay, decorated with colourful silky clothes and other ornaments, were taken out by various desams in a charged atmosphere.

Percussion ensembles also drummed up excitement as people from various ‘desams’ carried the horses models.
