Fairs and Festivals in Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu is a land of celebration and the numerous fairs and festivals in Tamil Nadu present a veritable picture of the rich culture and religious harmony in the state. Fairs and festivals provide the perfect opportunity to witness the glorious ancient heritage of Tamil Nadu and the time when thousands of people from across the state celebrate every occasion with pomp and gaiety.

The state of Tamil Nadu in South India boasts of being home to the largest number of fairs and festivals. Every moment here calls for a celebration, more so because the state houses a considerable number of temples and thus, a lot of religious celebrations take place frequently. The major festival months in Tamil Nadu are September-October and the post-harvest season from March-June. During this time, the entire state is filled with an air of fun, frolic and gaiety and, not only locals but also tourists in large numbers flock to Tamil Nadu to be a part of the grand celebrations that usually prolong over a period of 10 days or more.

A large number of Tamil Nadu fairs and festivals are related to religious ceremonies in some of the state’s spectacular temples. One such instance is the widely acclaimed Meenakshi Kalyanam Festival that is celebrated every year at the magnificent Meenakshi Temple in Madurai. During the time of festivals in Tamil Nadu, the temple deity is beautifully decorated with precious jewelry and colorful costumes and taken out for processions on the city streets.

Besides being a religious observance, Tamil Nadu festivals are also an occasion for social reunions. They are truly a part of everyday life of the locals and an authentic mirror to the glorious culture of Tamil Nadu. We provide you with a valuable opportunity to be a part of the various religious fairs and festivals in Tamil Nadu through our several tour packages.
