Polala Amavasya is majorly a festival observed in South India, particularly in the state of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka and adjoining areas. Hence this festival is also known as 'Shravana Amavasya'.

The observance of Polala Amavasya 2019 is very much similar to 'Shital Sasthi' in Orissa and 'Sheetal Saptami' puja in the northern states of India.

The day of worshipping Poleramma coincides with 'amavasya' each year; hence this vratam is called as 'Polala Amavasya.
