Thiruvathira Songs

      Thiruvathira is a festival celebrated in Kerala on the full moon day of the month of Dhanu. The festival commemorates the death of Kamadeva, the Hindu god of love. It is believed that on this day, the Goddess Parvathi finally met Lord Siva after her long penance.This festival is also called the festival of women, because women will fast on this day to get good husbands. Thiruvathirakali is a dance form performed by women on the day of Thiruvathira.
