What is Daiva Kola?
Daiva Kola, an amazing ceremonial extravaganza from Karnataka's Tulu-speaking districts, is profoundly embedded in local culture and traditions. This ceremonial practice combines dance, theatre, music, and religious devotion to create a lively show of cultural expression.

Daiva Kola promotes spiritual connection and strengthens social cohesiveness and identity within the community.
