Festivities

The word ‘'bonalu’' means ‘'feast’' in Telugu showing the importance that food plays in the festivities, where special delicacies are prepared as offerings for the Goddess. The goddess is worshiped in different forms and specific rituals, or ‘'poojas’' are conducted to appease Her.

Origin

The origin of the festival dates back to the 19th century when the region that is today Hyderabad and Secunderabad underwent the outbreak of a deadly plague. The residents of the two cities started praying to the Goddess to deliver them from the plague with special offerings. When the plague finally stopped, they devoted themselves to worshipping Her in remembrance of Her grace and mercy, dedicating several days to Her memory every year after that. This is the origin of the festival of Bonalu.
