In Dances of India: Mohiniyattam, one of the seven Indian classical dance forms, Mohiniyattam or the dance of the enchantress traces its origins to Kerala. The role of Mohini is exclusively to enchant, moham or enchantment being one of the noble and divine feminine qualities. Many of the Puranic legends described Lord Vishnu, the preserver, appearing in the form of a beguiling damsel to protect the universe from evil. Vishnu transformed himself into Mohini whenever evil prevailed and righteousness had to be restored.
