Gulal is a festival connected to Shigmo festival of Goa. It is celebrated in the month of Phalgun at the Shri Damodar Temple of Zambaulim, where this festival takes place. The festival begins by holding a puja of the coconut. A palki with an idol of Lord Damodar is taken out in procession in the evening and people enroute sprinkle Gulal on the idol.
Those carrying the palki and devotees get covered with Gulal.It is considered auspicious to get smeared with Gulal on this occasion.
On the main day Margao citys commercial activities come to a standstill as shops close down the shutters, since the owners and devotees of Damodar go to Zambaulim to pay obeisance to the Lord.
