Celebrated in Medom (April-May) it consists of processions of richly caparisoned elephants from various neigbouring temples to the Vadakunnatha temple, Thrissur. The most impressions are those from the Krishna temple at Thiruvambadi and the Devi temple at Paramekkavu, both situated in the town itself. This festival was introduced by Sakthan Thampuran, the Maharaja of erstwhile Kochi state. The Pooram festival is also well-known for the magnificent display of fireworks. It is celebrated by two rival groups representing the two divisions of Thrissur Paramekkavu and Thiruvambadi vying with each other in making the display of fireworks grander and more colourful. Each group is allowed to display a maximum of fifteen elephants and all efforts are made by each party to secure the best elephants in South India and the most artistic parasols, several kind which are raised on the elephants during the display. The commissioning of elephants and parasols is done in the utmost secrecy by each party to excel the other. Commencing in the early hours of the morning, the celebrations last till the break of dawn, the next day.
Of the rival groups participating in the Pooram, the most important ones are those from Pramekkavu and Thiruvambadi. At the close of the Pooram both these groups enter the temple through the western gate and come out through the southern gate to array themselves, face to face, one from the round and other form the Municipal Office road. This spectacle is highly enchanting. Although this grand festival is known as Thrissur Pooram, it is in fact the conclusion of the eight -day Utsavam of nine temples.

Qutab Minar Since those early days many dynasties and rulers flourished on its regal soil. The legacy of that past survives in the many monuments left behind by the regents, each a chronicle of the glory of its time and an imprint of the character of the ruler. Today, the city is a curious blend of the modern and traditional, skyscrapers, beautiful gardens and wide tree-lined avenues perpetuate the Mughal passion of landscaping and architectural excellence. More important, however, Delhi blends within its folds the great cultural variety of India; an unceasing range of activity, a million ways of saying 'You are Welcome'.

Most low-cost and medium-priced watches used mainly for timekeeping are electronic watches with quartz movements. Luxurious, collectible watches valued more for their workmanship and aesthetic appeal than for simple timekeeping, often have purely mechanical movements and are powered by springs, even though mechanical movements are less accurate than more affordable quartz movements.
Before the low-cost miniaturization that became possible in the 20th century, most watches were pocket watches, which had covers and were carried in a pocket and attached to a watch chain or watch fob. Watches evolved in the 1600s from spring
power-driven clocks, which appeared in the 1400s.

In olden times, a highway was any main road traveling a long distance outside of a city. Early roads between cities would at times suffer from highwaymen who would rob people traveling the route. In the 20th century, on the other hand, the word commonly came to be used simply for high-speed, often specially-designed automobile routes. On 10 September 1913, the first paved coast-to-coast highway opened in the US states.
Highways generally have a higher speed limit than other roads for the reason that they have additional lanes and are designed for driving at a higher speed. In distant areas, a highway may have rest areas where motorists may stop and calm down before resuming a long drive. By convention, the lane nearby to the median on a multi-lane highway is called the passing lane. The longest single national highway in the world is the Trans Canada Highway, which goes from Victoria, British Columbia, on the Pacific Coast, through ten states to the Atlantic Coast, at St. John's, the Newfoundland.
