The Vavu Bali is a Hindu ritual to appease ancestors. As part of this ritual that takes place in the Malayalam month of Karkkidakam (that falls during July or August) people at homes and on the premises of temples, perform special rituals.
Vavu Bali is held as a mass event in certain parts of Kerala, of which the most notable are the ones that take place on the banks of the Periyar near the Shiva temple in Aluva and on the Papanasam beach in Varkala.
In Kerala, festival dates are decided in accordance with the Malayalam calendar and the local traditions and customs. We have calculated the festival dates based on these. But there can be changes in the dates according the customs and rituals associated with each place of worship. As such, these should be considered only as approximate dates and have to be confirmed with the local authorities.
