Kerala has a number of other minor temple arts and some of these deserve mention. Patakam which is a simple form otKpothu is an art which is fast flying out for want of encouragement. In it, a single actor expounds puranic stories. Harikatha performance has in recent times taken the place of patakam., as it has more musical overtones and hence is more popular.
