Amazing Facts about the Vibrant Festival of Bathukamma

13 Aug 17

Bathukamma is a beautiful and colourful festival of Telangana that is celebrated by women, with flowers that grow exclusively in each region. But what are those things which make this festival so unique? Bathukamma is a symbol of Telangana’s cultural identity.

This vibrant festival is celebrated during the latter half of monsoon, before the onset of winter. As per the historical belief, the monsoon rains usually bring plenty of water into the fresh water ponds of Telangana and different wild flowers bloom in various vivacious colours all across the unfarmed and barren plains of the region.  

‘Gunuka poolu’ and ‘tangedu poolu’, banti, chemanti, nandi-vardhanam is few of the profuse flowers that are used on this festival. The festival begins a week before the grand finale of the Batukamma festival which falls two days before Dussehra.

As per the rituals, the women get back to their parent's home from their in-laws and celebrate the colors of flowers. For one complete week, they make small ‘Batukammas’, play around them every evening and immerse them in a nearby water pond.
