Sarpam thullal

Sarpam thullal

Sarpam-thullal serpent dance, or pampum-thullal is staged in Naaga temples. The propitiation of Serpent King is believed to give prosperity, health and off-spring. The percussion instruments used are pulluva-kutam or lute, dhakka and . Cymbals. During dance the dancer joins his hands over the body of the impersonator like serpent crawling its body around an object. The impersonator responds to his praises by waving his body like a happy or offended Cobra.
