Hyderabad Gears Up for Bonalu Festival

Hyderabad Gears Up for Bonalu Festival


Preparations are underway for the annual state festival of ‘Bonalu’, set to kick off from the traditional starting point in Golconda on July 7. This vibrant celebration, which also includes festivities in Hyderabad on July 28 and 29, as well as in Lashkar (Secunderabad), has received a boost in recent years with the formation of Telangana State. The government’s allocation of funds for temple refurbishment in various localities has further enhanced the fervor of the event.

First Bonalu Under the Congress Government

This year’s Bonalu holds significance as it marks the first celebration under the Congress government since the formation of Telangana. The government is leaving no stone unturned to ensure a grand and memorable occasion. Endowment Minister Konda Surekha, in a recent meeting with concerned departments, directed officials to ensure a splendid celebration. With each temple requiring about a month for painting and repairs, efforts are underway to complete the task on time.

Cultural Promotion and Artisan Involvement

The active involvement of the cultural department has been instrumental in promoting Bonalu and supporting local artisans. This festival serves as a platform for showcasing traditional art forms unique to the state, giving them a welcome boost. From colorful decorations to traditional music and dance performances, Bonalu embodies the rich cultural heritage of Telangana.

Community Participation and Festive Spirit

Bonalu is not just a religious festival but a community celebration that brings people together in joyous revelry. It is a time when devotees come together to offer prayers and seek blessings for prosperity and well-being. The streets come alive with processions, music, and the aroma of festive delicacies, creating an atmosphere of unity and merriment.


As the city of Hyderabad gears up for the upcoming Bonalu festival, anticipation and excitement are palpable. With meticulous planning and enthusiastic participation, this year’s celebrations promise to be a memorable affair, showcasing the cultural vibrancy and communal harmony of Telangana.
