    The Kratu Medaram Maha Jatara, Asia’s largest tribal festival, begins today in Telangana. The event celebrates deities Sammakka and Saralamma as they come out from the forest to dance ceremonially on mats at Janaranyam. Pilgrims from near and far gather at Medaram in Mulugu district to witness this spiritual spectacle.

    This biennial festival occurs every two years on Maghasuddha Poornami, also known as Sammakka-Saralamma Punnam. The Maha Jatara started last Wednesday with the Mandamelige festival’s inauguration by priests representing the goddesses in Medaram and Kannepally.
