The historic tribal festival Sammakka Sarakka jatara that is held at Medaram village in erstwhile Warangal district now in Mulugu district will begin from February 16.

The four day jatara will witness one of the largest congregation of people from across the country. It celebrated the valour of two tribal women – Sammakka and Sarakka who went down fighting the imperial Kakatiya army about eight centuries ago over the issue of payment of royalty.
Is the festival of Adivasi tribals but over the decades, people from all communities arrive here to celebrate and offer special prayers to the tribal deities Sammakka and Sarakka for four days.

As the festival witnessed swelling crowds with each passing year, the state government has owned the responsibility of providing facilities to the devotees such as toilets, drinking water, lighting, bathing ghats, security among others. It is expected that nearly one crore people throng this tiny Medaram village tucked in deep forest for the four days.

After the formation of separate Telangana, the state government has been liberally allocating funds for massive arrangements.
The event is a spectacle to witness as the tiny village turns into a major town offering virtually everything for the devotees.
