Jallikattu

The main event of Mattu Pongal is “Jallikattu” or “Manju virathu”. It is a Bull taming sport usually conducted on Mattu Pongal day. This sport is very popular in southern Tamil Nadu especially Madurai. There are various rock paintings in various parts of Tamilnadu which shows that this sport is happening from around 2000 B.C to 1500 B.C.

In this sport clothes, Garland or Money will be tied in the horns of the Bull and let loose in the open ground. Bulls are trained specially for this occasion. Young men waiting in the ground will try to grab hold of the Bull with its horn and if anyone managed to hold for the particular time they will be declared winners. Various prizes will be given to the winners If no one able to grab a particular Bull the prize will be given to the owner of Bull.

In various countries, this kind of sports is happening but only in “Jallikattu”, the Bull will be alive at the end. The Bulls and participants are checked by govt doctors before and after the event. Some of the Popular places where Jallikattu takes place is Alanganallur, Avaniyapuram, Palamedu.

Various organizations tried to stop this ancient sport by creating misleading allegations. But with the help of Students and general people who took protests against the ban, Jallikattu once again started last year and will be happening every year.
