Pongal Celebrations

Pongal, the harvest festival of Tamilnadu is dedicated to the Sun God. It is a four-day festival which according to the Tamil calendar is usually celebrated from January 14 to January 17. Thai Pongal corresponds to the harvest festival celebrated throughout India.

The day marks the start of the sun’s six-month-long journey northwards.   Thai Pongal is mainly celebrated to convey appreciation to the Sun God for a successful harvest. Part of the celebration is the boiling of the first rice of the season consecrated to the Sun.
