The great Bhagavata Mela tradition, a rare temple/theatre art in a unique blend of Bakti, music, dance & drama in vogue over 4 centuries, is the only surviving link today in Tamil Nadu that connects us with the ancient Sanskrit theatre. The Bhagavata Mela natakams, composed in chaste Telugu by Melattur Venkatarama Sastry (1743-1809 A.D), are performed annually, in adherence to the Natya Veda, in the sannidhi of Lord Sri Varadaraja Perumal of Melattur village as part of Sri Narasimha Jayanti Vasantotsav.
