festivals in Jan/Febr 2015

hello,

I'm looking for the best places (and dates) for festivals in Tamil Nadu between 10 january and end of february 2015.

Festivals like Pongal, Shivaratri, Thaipusam, Ayyanars, Mariamman etc, even in small villages, but authentique.

thanks

Hi...

The Harvest Festival or Pongal will be celebrated from January 14th to 17th. The Thai Pusam falls on Feb 3rd and the Maha Shivarathiri is on Feb 17th. Samayapuram Mariamman Poochoriyal (Flower Sprinkling) festival will also be held in the month of Masi (End of Feb), which would be very grand.

Regards

Prasanna
