The cattle festival in Tamil Nadu – Maatu Pongal 2013
Cows are sacred for Hindus. Here in Tamil Nadu, they are revered and cattle are celebrated for their hard work during the Annual Pongal Festival. In fact, there is a special day for them (today) and it’s called Maatu Pongal (மாட்டுப் பொங்கல்) meaning Cattle Pongal.
Below are the photos of cow(s) with decorations visiting our house over the years (In 2022, I edited this post to update with photos taken over many years), you can spot the cow’s family member raising her.
