Onam is the largest and ancient festival in the state of Kerala in India which has survived modern times. It is celebrated every year to welcome the legendary King Mahabali under whose rule everybody was happy and prosperous. The festival lasts for ten days and is linked to many elements of Kerala's culture and tradition. During these ten days a beautiful floral carpet, called Pookkalam, is made at every home.
