History of Kut Festival

One of the legends about this festival says that it is the 'Thanksgiving' festival of the Menashe tribe. The Menashe tribe is one of the 12 lost tribes of Israel, who were forced to exile when the Northern kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Assyrians. The tribe had to cross the Red Sea during their travel and they celebrated Kut to give thanks for their safe passage. Other legends hint towards its existence since the time of nature worship which was practised before other preachings arrived.

No matter what the reason, Kut, today is a colourful harvest festival celebrated with great fervour.
