This year it starts on August 25 and finishes on September 6.
Also known as the festival of rain flowers, it commemorates the annual visit of King Mahabali. Mahabali has been venerated by Kerala since prehistory. Locals celebrate ostentatiously this festival to show their beloved king their happiness.
