Saurashtra Tamil Sangamam

Why in news? Nearly 3,000 people are expected to attend Saurashtra Tamil Sangamam.


  • It is a 10-day festival that celebrates the age-old ties and cultural links between the two coastal States of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
  • The festival aims to highlight the cultural diversity and strength of India and to reconnect people with pilgrimage destinations and cultural heritage.
  • This event will take place at multiple locations in Gujarat such as Somnath, Dwarka and the Statue of Unity at Kevadia.
  • Background:
    • Centuries ago, invasions between 600 and 1000 years ago forced numerous individuals to migrate from Saurashtra in Gujarat and establish new settlements in Tamil Nadu's districts around Madurai, now known as Tamil Saurashtrian.
  • Logo:
    • It is a representation of the merging of the silk fabric expertise of the Tamil Saurashtrian people and the textile industry of Gujarat.
    • A young woman, posing in a dancing posture with dandiya (Gujarat)and bharatanatyam (Tamil Nadu), embodies the coming together of two art forms.
