Pongal is traditionally dedicated to the Sun God surya.It coincides with the festival Makara Sankranthi celebrated throughout India as the winter harvest

Bhogi
The day preceding Pongal is called Bhogi when people discard old things and focus on new belongings.

Maattu Pongal

Maattu pongal is intended to honor the cattle that worked hard throughout the year. The farm bulls are given a bath, their horns painted and adorned with new sarees in some places.

Kaanum Pongal


During Kaanum Pongal (the word kaanum means "to view"), people visit relatives and friends to enjoy the festive season.Mukkanuma, the final day of Sankranthi festival, is celebrated to worship cattle. Mukkanuma is famous among the non-vegetarians of the society. People do not eat any non-vegetarian during the first three days of the festival and eat it only on the day of Mukkanuma.
