Tripunithura Uthram is one of the most important festival observed in a calendar year at the Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple at Tripunithura in Kerala. Tripunithura Uthram 2024 date is February 26.

The festival, also known as Uthram Thirunal, is famous for Poornathrayeesa sangeetholsavam and Panchari melam.

The festival is observed on the birth anniversary of Lord Poornathrayeesa.

Another major highlight of the festival is the sumptuous feast at the Oottupura Malika.

The festival begins with the procession of Sree Poornathrayeesa atop a caparisoned elephant.

The rituals conclude with appam nivedyam and Lakshmi Narayana Vilakku.

Pishari Kovil Amma visits Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple for a combined procession which is termed as Lakshmi Narayana Vilakku (Goddess Lakshmi and Bhagavan Vishnu) and the Arattu (holy bath) of Pishari Kovil Amma is held at Phalguna Theertham (temple pond of Sree Poornathrayeesa temple) on Uthram Naal (the birthday of Poornathrayeesa).

The arattu festival is held on Thiruvonam nakshatra day.

Theeyattu (a type of artistic form as part of religious rites done for Devi) is conducted only on this day at Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple for pleasing his sister. It is a wonderful experience to see the brother and sister bidding goodbye at the end of the rituals.

The Anatha pratishta festival in the temple is held in Malayalam Edava Masam (May - June).
