Festivals

"Every festival in Mauritius reflects the country's glorious past, rich culture and age-old traditions, and is celebrated with great enthusiasm.

Thaipoosam Cavadee: One of the main festivals of Mauritius, Cavadee is dedicated to Lord Murugam. During this 10-day festival, the locals observe fast and offer prayers; as for tourists, this is the ideal time to gorge on delicious vegetarian food. To witness the festival in its full spirit, visit the Sockalingum Meenatchee Ammen Kovil, where you will chance upon kavadis, a wooden box adorned with peacock feathers and flowers. The box is decorated to carry it to the temple.

Thimithi: Another significant festival of Mauritius, this 10-day event sees devotees fast and meditate, while also refraining from any excesses. On the last day of this festival, devotees engage in the ceremonial 'walk on fire', where devout Hindus walk barefoot on the burning pit of coal to prove their faith. This practice is one of the most watched cultural events of Mauritius.

Lantern Festival: Celebrated 15 days after the Chinese New Year, the Lantern Festival is one of the most popular festivals in Mauritius. It is observed by the Chinese community and during the festival, you will see people in different costumes, parading on the streets and a host of dancing dragons too.

The other festivals celebrated in Mauritius include Holi, mid-Autumn Festival, Chinese Spring Festival, Pilgrimage To Father Jacques Desire Laval, Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid Ul Fitr, Christmas, and Ghoon."
