Onam in Whitefield at The Zuri
Kerala Food Festival at the Zuri in celebration of Onam between the 28th of August and the 6th of September.
Every year for ten glorious days between the months of August and September, the people of Kerala celebrate Onam, the festival which ushers the beginning of the harvest season, by preparing to welcome the visit of the beloved Mahabali, the mythical Asura king of ancient Kerala.
This year though, King Mahabali might just have enough reason to take a small little detour on his journey to the state! And the reason is right here in Whitefield, Bangalore - The Zuri. Ever the perfect host, and always the centre of buzz, The Zuri Whitefield, has whipped up yet another delightful theme for food lovers in celebration of the Onam festival.
Here's announcing the Kerala Food Festival at the hip and happening luxury hotel in Whitefield.
