Lamp Lighting Ritual
The lighting of a lamp is closely associated with all important events and phases in a person's life as well as auspicious and important occasions. It shows the way from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge. Inspired by this beautiful tradition, Kumarakom takes a small step to spread Indian culture. A thousand lamps are lit every night with the help of local ladies. The proceeds from the lamp lighting are given to support local communities. Watching this ritual will cast a magical spell on you.
