We organise annual events so you can participate in a full cultural experience – please contact us for more information.

January events
Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated by the Tamil community. It is a celebration to thank the Sun, Mother Nature and the various farm animals that help to contribute to a bountiful harvest. In the spirit of Pongal, Mohanam wants to share this spirit of abundance by creating an experience for all to enjoy.
The second day is the main day of Pongal and is celebrated as Surya Pongal. On this day, the Sun God is honoured. Colourful decorative floor patterns called kolam are drawn at the entrance of one’s home, and each household cooks a pot of fresh rice with milk at auspicious timings. We will guide you through the village so you can experience the multitude colourful displays of gratitude.

February events

A yearly festival event to revive the economy of local artists, artisans and vendors through the direct selling of their crafts to the consumer. 

It is our hope to bring sustainable business practices to the local crafts people and empower them through community and collaboration.

April events
This day is signified as a new beginning. People celebrate this day as the day that would bring them a new start with new opportunities. Just before the day of Puthandu, women decorate the house with kolam to welcome prosperity and joy. Cleaning the house on the day before or on Puthandu and setting up a tray filled with fruits, flowers, and other items that are considered auspicious are a common practice.

At Mohanam we invite you to join with us to share our prosperity for the new year with you.
