Reeling back in the history
Back in the Sangam period, Kerala was under the rule of King Mahabali who was famous for his generosity. The ever-increasing popularity of the king made other gods feel jealous. The gods came together and visited Lord Vishnu with their concerns.
Lord Vishnu disguised himself as a poor brahmin as he arrived at Mahabali’s kingdom and asked for land which could be covered within three feet. The generosity and kind-hearted nature of Mahabali intrigued Lord Vishnu. Hence, Lord Vishnu granted him a boon to annually visit his people that led to the celebration of Onam in India.
