Things to do in Dubai

The state of Tamil Nadu is rich in history and culture. Hence, it never goes short of festivals and celebrations. During the middle of January, the people of Tamil Nadu celebrate the Pongal festival. Pongal festival is a harvest festival where devotees pay homage to the Sun God. This four-day-long festival is celebrated as the end of a farming season. Farmers get relief from their tedious farmwork and worship mother nature, the Sun God, and the cattle as well.

The Pongal festival includes Thai Pongal, Surya Pongal, Mattu Pongal, and Kaanum Pongal. People throw away old belongings and wear new clothes. They wake up early in the morning and decorate their houses with Kolam. People also make a bonfire in their house premises where newly harvested rice is boiled with milk.

This festival is immensely significant in Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu Jallikattu is a part of this Pongal celebration.

On the third day of Pongal, quite a few places in the state host the Jallikattu Bull Festival. Jallikattu festival is an important annual event that is hosted in the villages of Tamil Nadu.

In the past, this event was accused of being a part of animal cruelty. However, nothing seems to put this sport on a leash. This festival is very much like Spain's bullfighting. This article is all about what is Jallikattu festival, bull Jallikattu, the Jallikattu history, and how it is important even today.
