Onam is the biggest and the most important festival of the state

of Kerala. It is a harvest festival and is celebrated with joy and

enthusiasm all over the state by people of all communities.

According to a popular legend, the festival is celebrated to

welcome King Mahabali, whose spirit is said to visit Kerala at the

time of Onam.
