Onam special Kerala tour packages

The festival of Onam celebrated in Kerala is a fiesta that lasts for ten days- starting from ‘Atham’ (the first day) and ending on ‘Thiruvonam’ (the tenth day). During the time of Onam, Kerala celebrates its rice harvesting festival and also the festival of rain flowers. Also, Onam is the state festival of Kerala. There is an interesting legend behind the Onam festival.

As the famous legend goes by, King Mahabali was an Asura King whose reign was considered to be the best; all lived in happiness and the lands prospered. Later on he was sent to Pathala, the underworld by Vamana (Lord Vishnu); who granted him the permission to visit his subjects every year.

New dresses, the floral carpet- ‘pookalam’, ‘Onasadhya’- the food fiesta of rice and a variety of curries and payasam (the Indian dessert), Pulikali (in which men paint tigers in different colours on their bodies and dance through the streets), Thiruvadira (a dance performed by girls) and many other games- ‘Onakalikal’ make the celebrations of this festival a rich and colourful one.

Famously known as the Pooja festival, the festival of Navaratri is also a 10-day fiesta in which during the first nine days, the nine forms of the Goddess Durga are worshipped and the tenth day is celebrated Vijaya Dashami (or otherwise known as Dussehra). The festival is famous in India as well as Nepal.

In the Southern parts of India; mainly in Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, Saraswathi Puja is carried out. Wherein; all the books are placed in temples or houses for Puja. These books are taken back on the day of Vijaya Dashami. For Saraswathi Puja, the Hindu deity, Saraswathi – the Goddess of knowledge is worshipped. The day is considered auspicious for initiating studies and is known as ‘Vidyarambham’.

Diwali (October 30, 2016)

During the festival of Diwali, the Hindu deity Lakshmi; the Goddess of fertility and prosperity is worshipped. The festival is also known as the ‘festival of lights’.
