As per Wiki, Onam commemorates Vamana means the fifth avatar of Hindu god Vishnu and the generous but egotistical daitya king Mahabali. According to the Hindu legends, after Indra (the king of the devas) is defeated by Mahabali (the king of the asuras), the devas ultimately seek refuge in Vishnu, who agrees to restore Indra to power.

Seeking refuge, the devas turned to Vishnu, who incarnated as a dwarf priest named Vamana. Mahabali conducted a ritual prayer attended by Vamana, who requested only three feet of land. Despite sage Shukra warning him about Vamana’s divine nature, Mahabali agreed. Vamana then grew in size, covering the entire universe in three strides.
