Onam Celebrations In South India

Kathakali Traditional Dance Form. Onam Celebrations Are Incomplete Without Onam Dance, Music, Food And Celebrations. Kathakali Is The Most Popular Traditional Onam Folk Dance.

Onam is one of the biggest festivals in South India. It is an annual harvest festival celebrated over 10 glorious days. A time of great joy, Onam is observed in the months of August-September and marked by prayer services, music, good food, dance, sports, Pookkalam (floral rangoli), and Vallamkali (boat races).

Onam is also celebrated in memory of the great and benevolent king Mahabali who ruled Kerala once upon a time. As legend goes, the mighty king was tricked and pushed down into hell by Vishnu, who had disguised himself as dwarf Vamana on behalf of the jealous gods who found themselves without purpose in a just and prosperous kingdom the king had created. But He was granted a wish to be allowed to visit his kingdom once every year.

People celebrate the homecoming of the great king by dressing up as the King, and walking down the streets, or visiting places amidst greetings and cheers by the local people and children.
