MADURAI: The three-day Jallikattu event – a bull-taming sport – began in several parts of Tamil Nadu, including Madurai.

Nearly 1000 bull tamers and 3,000 bulls are expected to participate in Jallikattu this year.

 

The annual Jallikattu game is held during the harvest festival of Pongal.

Last week, the Madurai District administration made Aadhaar mandatory for all bull tamers participating in Jallikattu event. However, after facing backlash from participants, the order was revoked.

 People across Tamil Nadu on Sunday celebrated the harvest festival of Pongal.
