Padur Vela

Padur Vela, usually celebrated on February 23 or 24 every year is the curtain raiser for Vela Poorams in Palakkad.
The name Padur (Padoor:പാടൂര്) is derived from the usage : “The land (oor : ഊര്) of Palakkad King (പാലക്കാട്‌ രാജാവ്)”. This is why, the ‘Vela-Pooram’ celebrations in Palakkad starts from Padur.
