Fairs and Festivals


Poleramma Festival

This festival is celebrated for three days.  A big kumbham is offered and after, it is mixed with the blood of sacrificial buffalo.  It is placed on the head of a person who scatters it around the village.  At that time no outsider is allowed to stay there as it is believed that if an outsider carries away the bali, his village would receive the blessings of the gods and not the village that worship the goddess. So the person carrying the bali is watched  carefully and swords are waved over to him.
