Onam 2017

Onam is an annual Hindu festival celebrated in the Kerala state of India with great enthusiasm and glee. According to the Malayalam Calendar, it falls in the Chingam month and according to Gregorian calendar it is celebrated in the month of August or September. It is a harvest festival that is dedicated to the Lord Mahabali whose spirit is believed to visit the place during the same. This 10 day long festival has great importance and relevance in the state, thus is celebrated in a grand manner.

History says that King Mahabali, the ruler of Kerala was very egoistic and haughty and the gods used this personality trait of him to end his life. However, a vardaan (boon) was also given keeping in mind his good deeds that he could visit his loved ones once in an year. It is on the occasion of Onam, the king comes to visit the people of his kingdom and people welcome him wholeheartedly. This cultural festival involves a lot of activities such as snake boat race, playing traditional games and sports, etc. This spectacular race is witnessed by a large number of visitors from around the country too. Mats created with flowers are also made and kept outside the houses to welcome the king. Special graceful dances are also performed by the women that make the festival all the more interesting. This year, Onam will be celebrated on 26 August to 6 September 2017 with the same glee as always and its charm can only be felt by visiting Kerala. Book a flight/train/bus to Kerala soon and watch the grandeur of this event.
