Kanuma 2023 | Kanuma Festival during Sankranthi in Andhra Pradesh

Kanuma festival is the third day of four-day Sankranthi festival celebrated in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. In 2023, Kanuma date is January 16.

Govardhana Puja or Go puja (worship of cows) is the major ritual during Kanuma. It is believed that Lord Sri Krishna was lifted the Govardhana parvatham (Mount Govardhan) to save the farmers and people of Gokulam. Lord Indra with his anguish poured heavy cyclone on Gokulam where little Krishna lived with his family and people. People went to Krishna and requested him to save them from this natural disaster.

Lord Krishna knew it was the result of Indra’s headstrong nature and lifted Mount Govardhan with his little finger. Indra realized that Krishna was none other than Sri Maha Vishnu and worshipped him to forgive. As a commemoration of Lord krishna’s victory over headstrong Indra, Kanuma festival is celebrated.

Kanuma festival is celebrated as Mattu Pongal in Tamil Nadu. Mattu Pongal is dedicated to the cattle. This is the third day of four-day Pongal festival.
