Onam, the festival of vibrant hues and flavours celebrates the homecoming of King Mahabali. This ten-day festival begins with the Atham asterism in the month of Chingam (August/September).

People celebrate this festive season by arranging floral carpet (Pookkalam), setting up swings and preparing a grand vegetable feast called Onasadya.

Malabar celebrates Onam with Onapottan Theyyam, a unique art form that signifies the arrival of the legendary Maveli.
