Onam is the harvest festival and marks the mystical demon King Mahabali’s home-coming. It is the National Festival of Kerala which Malayalis celebrates during the month of Chingam, the first month of the calendar of Malayalam. Usually, it comes around the month of August and September. It is said that Vishnu (or Vamana) sent the great king to the otherworld, but given permission to visit his people once every year, hence Onam. Legend has it that there was no caste-based discrimination when Mahabali ruled, and there was no corruption or violence there. In the 1960s the government of Kerala declared it an official holiday.
Thanks to their temple, the place named Thrikkakkara in Kochi is especially important during the festival. As part of the activities on Onam, there are several variety shows and competitions. Snake boat races are one big occurrence. The vessels are identical to dragon boats, which are the traditional war boats dating back around 500 years in the region. Another important thing, particularly in the Thrissur district, is the Kummati Kali dances through the roads. The artists are carrying bright masks and hiding in grass their heads. Theyyam performers – called direct connections to the gods – are often usually seen throughout the celebration, and are sometimes performed in temples. For many the festival’s highlight is the Onam sadya (sadya means feast). Vegetarian food is mostly consumed widely in the city, in hotels or households, and is delivered on a banana leaf at all times.
The most significant brunch is offered on the festival’s main day, Thiru Onam. It can serve nine to 30 different dishes including curries, dahl, pickles, poppadoms, banana chips and more.
