Mylapore Festival

Mylapore Festival happens in January every year at Mylapore, Chennai. Women, Men and Children throng all over from Chennai and other parts of Tamilnadu to participate in this festival. During this time many other festivals like music festival also happen.

Tourists from India and other parts of the world travel here to enjoy the festive season. January is the best month to visit Tamilnadu. People of Tamilnadu celebrate PONGAL- a farmer’s festival for five days. Mylapore Festival adds the colour and vibes for the festive season.


Mylapore Kolam CompetitionMylapore kolam competition brings the best out of women to showcase their intricate design ability. Few good men also compete with much – trained women. The event happens just next to the World famous Mylapore Kabbaleeshwar temple.

Women practice this art of putting kolam right from their childhood keeping, their culture and tradition alive. Rice powder used to draw the Kolam at their houses so, that ants will feed on that. Kolam is an intricate design created around the dots arranged in a pattern. Every kolam has its dot pattern and unique design. Every competitor will get a square space and a time limit of 120 minutes given to complete the KOLAM.

Love to record videos and click photos of this design. The joy of covering this event increases year by year. Every year some new designs emerge. New areas in your brain will be activated when you see this work of fingers. Hand-eye coordination is more important in creating these designs.
