The Bihu festival has come, and people from all around the country have begun to prepare for the occasion. When it comes to festivals, the first thing that springs to mind is diverse cuisines to enjoy delicious food during any festival or occasion.


Bihu is also known as the festival of Bohag Bihu. The festival is celebrated on April 14 every year, and it lasts for almost seven days. There is a total of three types of Bihu festivals in a year that is celebrated by the people, especially the Assamese community.

Each one commemorates one unique season in the agricultural calendar. These are Rongaali Bihu or Bohag Bihu in April, Kati Bihu or Kongaali Bihu in October, and Magh Bihu or Bhogaali Bihu in November. However, Bohag Bihu is the most important which falls in April.
