Onam festival

recommendation by susanna-alaitz

Onam is the most important of festivals observed in the state of Kerala. It celebrates harvest. People welcome king Mahabali back from his exile with cleaned houses, flower arrangements, music, dance, and festive mood. A special feature are the boat races held in the backwaters, most famous of which are held in Alleppey, Aranmula and Kottayam towns. Elephant processions and community singing constitute other celebrations of the Onam festival.

The Thrissur Pooram festival is celebrated in the state of Kerala in summer, the most spectacular of the festival takes place at the temple of Vadakkunathan near Trichur. Thirty identically decorated elephants carrying ceremonial umbrellas and fanned by whisks are paraded to the temple, and the captain elephant is installed with the idol of Vadakkunathan. The elephants then go around accompanied by loud sounding of trumpets, pipers and crowds.
