Kandanar Kelan

Kandanar Kelan

Legend has it that Kandanar Kelan, an ancient warrior, was out hunting in the forest when it suddenly caught fire. Finding no other means of escape Kandanar Kelan climbed a tree but the fire consumed him still. When another warrior god saw Kandanar Kelan’s ashes in the burnt forest, he traced his form with a bow and gave him back his life. The Theyyam celebrates both Kandanar Kelan’s revival and his anger towards the fire which burnt him up.
