About Bathukamma

�Bathukamma Panduga� (Bathukamma festival) is the most divine and most celebrated festival of Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh. �Bathuku� means the life and Amma means the Mother. On a whole, it is a festival to worship the �Life Giver�, the universal energy - Goddess Shakti. Bathukamma represents the glory of the Patron Goddess of womanhood � Maha Gauri Devi.

Bathukamma is made up of seven concentric layers of flowers that are arranged in a pyramid shape. As it is a festival of women, they dance around it. The synchronizing steps along with singing Bathukamma Paatalu (Songs - praising Bathukamma) make everyone to feel the vibrant mood of Telangana women.
