Mahalaya Amavasya is also known as Pitru Amavasya or Bhadrapada Amavasya or Sarva pitru/Sarvapitri Amavasya.

According to Amavasyanth calender it’s performed on the last day of the month and it is the starting of Vijaya Dashami (dusshera) and Bathukamma. Generally it falls in September- October months of Gregorian calendar.

This day is a special, most important and highly sacred day for Hindus as every Hindu family express their gratitude to the previous generations of people. Hindus pay homage to their ancestors by way of food offerings on this day.

In Telangana, the colorful festival of flowers i.e. BATHUKAMMA(A Floral Festival), starts on this day and it celebrated for nine days. On this auspicious day Bathukamma is called as Engili Puvvu Bathukamma, because first they pay homage to their ancestors by way of food offerings and then they start making Bathukamma.

In Bengal, this day is the beginning of goddess Durga Devi puja festivities i.e., Navarathri Uthsav beginning.
