Lamp Lighting Ritual

Share

In India, the lighting of a lamp is closely associated with all the important events and phases in a person's life. It shows the way from darkness to light and ignorance to knowledge. Inspired by this beautiful tradition, the hotel has taken a small step to spread Indian culture. The ritual is one of the top things to do in Kumarakom. 

As part of the hotel's community initiative program, 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 the ritual of lamps being lit and the sight of the resort lit up with the soft sparkling glow of lamps will cast a magical spell on you.
