What is Onam?


Hindus have three substantial festivals, which are Vishu, Thiruvanthira, and Onam – with the latter being a harvest festival that is observed in the month of Chingam on the Malayalam calendar, coinciding with the Gregorian months of August and September. Onam originated in the Indian state Kerala, and it honors King Mahabali, a benignant king in the Hindu mythology, whose spirit is believed to visit Kerala during Onam. The day is celebrated with several ceremonies, including but not limited to boat races; martial arts; tug of war; plantain offerings and flower arrangements; worship; music and various dances, such as tiger dance, mask dance, women’s dance, and folk songs and dance.
