History of Onam

According to Indian mythology, the Brahmin saint Prahlada had a grandson named Mahabali, who defeated the gods and conquered three worlds. In the Vishnu sect, the gods asked Sir Vishnu to help him fight against Mahabali, but Vishnu refused to accept Mahabali as a good ruler and believer. After the victory of the Mahabali gods, sacrifices were held. Sir Vishnu took the opportunity to test his dedication to Mahabali and approached Mahabali in the form of a dwarf boy named Vamana.

The king promised the boy as much as he could, but Wamana refused and told him not to ask for more than one thing. He needs three steps. Mahabali was surprised by the boy’s wishes, but he agreed. Vamana grew up with one foot covering the ground and water, and the other covering the sky. Mahabali dedicated the third foot to himself. Wamana trampled Mahabali into the underworld (hell), but he was happy with her dedication and congratulated her on coming to his land every year. Remember, Mahabali is an Onam festival.
