Malayalam Traditional Calendar

The Malayalam calendar, also known as the Kolla Varsham or the Kollam Era, is a traditional calendar system primarily used in the Indian state of Kerala. It has a rich history and cultural significance. Here's an overview of the history of the Malayalam traditional calendar:

  1. Origin: The Malayalam calendar's origin is traditionally attributed to the legendary king of Kerala, Mahabali. It is believed to have started in 825 CE, making it more than a thousand years old.
  2. Lunar Calendar: Like many traditional Indian calendars, the Malayalam calendar is a lunar calendar. It is based on the cycles of the moon and divides the year into 12 months.
  3. Naming of Months: The months in the Malayalam calendar are named differently from the Gregorian calendar. They are typically named after celestial bodies, stars, and traditional agricultural activities. Some of the months' names include Chingam, Kanni, Thulam, Makaram, and Medam.
  4. Year Origin: The Malayalam calendar's starting point, known as the Kollam Era, is believed to be the year when the legendary king Mahabali visited Kerala. This event is celebrated as the festival of Onam.
  5. Cultural Significance: The Malayalam calendar is deeply intertwined with Kerala's cultural and religious life. It is used to determine the dates of festivals, rituals, temple events, and auspicious occasions. Many of Kerala's major festivals, such as Onam and Vishu, follow this calendar.
  6. Agricultural Calendar: The Malayalam calendar also plays a significant role in agriculture and farming in Kerala. The timing of planting and harvesting crops is often determined by this calendar.
  7. Regional Variations: While the Malayalam calendar is widely followed in Kerala, there can be regional variations in its observance and the names of months. Some parts of Kerala may use different names for months or have local customs associated with the calendar.
  8. Modern Usage: While the Gregorian calendar is commonly used for administrative and official purposes, the Malayalam calendar remains an integral part of daily life in Kerala. It is often used to mark personal events, auspicious days, and traditional festivals.
  9. Panchangams: Panchangams, or almanacs, are commonly published in Kerala. These books provide detailed information about the Malayalam calendar, including tithis (lunar phases), Nakshatras (constellations), festival dates, and astrological information.

The Malayalam calendar reflects the rich cultural heritage of Kerala and is an important part of the state's identity. It continues to be used for various cultural, religious, and agricultural purposes, connecting the people of Kerala to their traditions and history.
