The onset of the monsoon in Hyderabad is also a time when the festivities will begin. Last year, it was a subdued Bonalu festival in the city. However, in total contrast to 2020, this year, the Bonalu festival will be held on a large scale from July 11. 


The state government and endowments department, along with temple committees, are making elaborate plans to make the festivities a huge success. The celebrations will begin with offerings at the Jagadamba temple located atop Golconda Fort on July 11. Special preparations are being made, especially at the historic Golconda Fort. 


From there onwards, the celebrations will continue in Mahankali temple, Secunderabad, on July 24 and in Lal Darwaza, old city, on August 1. Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhara Rao has allotted Rs 15 crore for the celebrations. 


In 2020, people offered bonams in their houses due to the pandemic situation. However, this year, there is no lockdown, and large-scale preparations are on to make sure the devotees get to make up for last year. 


Decorations, cleaning of temples, painting of premises, silk robes, jewelry, and other items for the goddess are being readied. Special silk robes will be taken in a procession to the temple on Golconda Fort. On July 9, the goddess will appear in different forms throughout the day to devotees. 


In fact, the Jagadamba Mahankali temple atop Golconda Fort also has historical significance as bonalu have been celebrated since the Qutub Shahi period. The Asaf Jahi rulers of the princely state of Hyderabad, descendants of the Qutub Shahi dynasty, also presented bonams during the festive period. 


Bonalu festival continues to be celebrated even after the formation of the state. The presentation of silk robes to the goddess on behalf of the government is being followed even to this day.
