Kavadi Attam (காவடி ஆட்டம்) :  Kavadi Attam is a dance performed by the devotees during the ceremonial worship of Lord Murugan. The kavadi itself is a physical burden through which the devotees implore for help from Murugan. The kavadi consists of two semicircular pieces of wood or steel which are bent and attached to a cross structure that can be balanced on the shoulders of the devotee. It is often decorated with flowers, peacock feathers (the vehicle of God Murugan) among other things.
