The folk dance 'Pinnal Thiruvathira' in Kerala 2 of 2

Sri Krishna surrounded by Gopikas!
'Thiruvathira' is a unique dance performed in Kerala, south India. It is performed by women in groups, dressed in traditional Kerala attire, dancing in a circle. The graceful movements of the dance are both enchanting and elegant. The white saris with colourful borders along with fresh jasmines adorning their hair make for a wonderful sight!

Seen here is Pinnal Thiruvathira in praise of Lord Krishna.
(Sree Anaprampal Dharmashastha temple, Thalavady, Alleppey, Kerala)
