THRISSUR POORAM HISTORY
The Arattupuzha festival was the only major festival celebrated in Kerala before the Thrissur Pooram celebration, Arattupuzha festival was held ten kilometers to the south of Thrissur and It was a one day festival in which most Thrissur temples took part.
One day, due to the heavy rains, many couldn’t reach Arattapuzha festival on time. Because they arrived late, they weren’t allowed into the temple premises. The humiliated temple officials informed Sakthan Thampuran about what had happened. In 1798, he unified the 10 temples situated around Vadakkunnathan Temple and organised the celebration of Thrissur Pooram as a mass festival which is bigger and more overgenerous than the Arattupuzha Pooram. 
Sakthan Thampuran himself planned every little detail of the Pooram, including ordaining the participating temples into two groups namely "Paramekkavu side" and "Thiruvambady side", headed by principal participants Paramekkavu Bagavathi Temple and Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple respectively. Now, after more than 200 years later, the Pooram still follows the format set by the king.
