Mayilattam is an artistic and religious form of dance performed in the Hindu temples of Kerala in reverence to Lord Subrahmanya.
Mayilattam performer wears costumes like Lord Subrahmanya travelling on his Peacock and performs specific dances. The performer dances not on his bare foot but on a tall piece of wood attached at the end of his feet. This art requires extensive training and practise. Due to this, the number of Mayilattam performers is decreasing. A notable Mayilattam performer is Kumaranalloor Mani HERE SHOWING MYILATTOM FROM CHENNAI
