Bathukamma

Bathukamma is a vibrant and cherished floral festival of Telangana, celebrating the beauty of nature and the spirit of womanhood. Held annually during the month of Ashwin, this nine-day festival sees women crafting exquisite flower stacks, or “Bathukammas,” from locally sourced blooms. These creations are then celebrated with communal singing and dancing, fostering a deep sense of unity and cultural pride. Bathukamma is more than a festival; it is a tribute to the agrarian roots of Telangana, emphasizing ecological harmony and the strength of community bonds. As it gains international recognition, Bathukamma continues to connect the diaspora with their heritage, symbolizing the enduring beauty and resilience of Telangana’s traditions.
