Onam, kerala, India

Kerala is at its loveliest during the ten-day festival of Onam (Aug–Sep), its trees brimming with fruit under warm sunshine. This is an inclusive, secular event that honors King Mahabali who, it is said, ruled over a period of happiness and prosperity in the region. It brings out all the spectacle of Keralan culture: courtyards are dressed with floral carpets, there are costumed dances and sports, and chanting oarsmen steer a popular Snake Boat Race along the Pampa River. Onasadya, a nine- course feast served on banana leaves, showcases the region’s delicate and varied cuisine.
