The first month of Malayalam New Year 2022 will be observed on August 17, Wednesday. The first month of the official Malayalam New Year is known as Chingam 1. The people of Kerala celebrate Chingam 1 by organising special pujas and prayers in temples. Hindus consider this month highly auspicious for weddings, moving into a new house, buying a new house or starting new ventures. People greet each other on this day through various social media platforms. As you celebrate Malayalam New Year and Chingam 1 2022, we at LatestLY have curated HD images and wallpapers that you can download and send to all your friends and family as greetings for the day.

Kolla Varsham is the traditional calendar followed by the people of Kerala. This calendar is based on the sun transitions from one rasi to another. Chingam 1, the first month of Malayalam New year, marks the end of the most difficult Karkidakam month, which is the peak monsoon season. Though Vishu is considered to be the first month of the astronomical new year, Chingam marks the official beginning of the Malayalam New Year. Here are HD Images and wallpapers that you can download and send to one and all as greetings for the day.
