Celebrate this Onam with Palmgrove Lake Resort in Alleppey: Experience Kerala at its cultural best!

Updated: Oct 28, 2022

Onam is the harvest festival in Kerala, a 10-day celebration at the end of the monsoon, falling in August/September every year. The colorful festival of Kerala traces the beginning of Kollavarsham, the Malayalam year. The state is the epitome of its tradition and culture with Pookkalam (Rangoli with fresh flowers), Thiruvathirakali (traditional dance form of Kerala), Unjalattam (playing on the swing), Pulikkali ( recreational folk dance form of Kerala where the performers painted like tigers in red, yellow, and black, and dance to the local rhythms in Chenda and Udukku following the theme of a tiger hunt), and Onappattu. Keralites all over the world carry the spirit of Onam and feel nostalgic while celebrating a non-residential Onam. Onasadya (a vegetarian sumptuous feast) is the highlight of the Onam celebration. From day1, Atham, every entrance (home, educational institutions, and offices) is decorated with Onappokkalams for the next ten days. Onathappan (clay pyramid represents Mahabali, the demon King associated with the myth behind Onam in Kerala)is placed alongside the Pookkalam. Children fly like butterflies to garner flowers and prepare fresh designs each day.
