Madurai Float festival or Madurai Teppakulam Festival deserves a special mention among the festivals of Tamilnadu, as it is one of the most gorgeous and grandeur celebrations in South India. This year 2020, the Mariamman float festival falls on the 8th of February 2020.
Karthigai Deepam festival is essentially a festival of lamps which is celebrated grandly in the South Indian State of Tamilnadu and some parts of Kerala and Sri Lanka. Usually falls in the Tamil month of Karthigai (mid-November to mid-December).
The history of Tamil and Tamil Nadu without Madurai is impossible. Located on the banks of River Vaigai, Madurai has been a major settlement for two millennia. This ancient city is the last remaining mega-evidence of a glorious past of the oldest Kingdom in the world.
