About the Festival Onam

Celebrated in memory of the legendary King Mahabali, it serves as a poignant reminder of the timeless values ​​of benevolence, compassion and sacrifice. It’s also an occasion to honor the tireless efforts of our farming community and express gratitude to Mother Nature for her generosity.
