Gangaur Festival Rajasthan IndiaWhen : 29th to 30th Mar, 2017.
Venue :Jaipur, Rajasthan
Rajasthan is among the richest states in the country as far as the field of arts and crafts is concerned. Celebrations occur almost round the year in Rajasthan and are a splendid opportunity for tourists to gain an insight into the life of the Rajasthan during their travel. The Gangaur festival is one of them. Gangaur is a largely female-centric festival and most of the festivities, the pujas, are conducted by women. It is celebrated in honour of Gauri, the goddess of abundance. Young girls adorned in their best clothes pray for a spouse of their choice. The married ladies pray for the welfare of their husbands. The celebrations at Bikaner, Jodhpur, Nathdwara and Jaisalmer are full of pomp and are a must-see. Girls worship the goddess throughout the preceding fortnight. Colorful images of Gauri are taken out in procession accompanied by the town band. Another unique thing about this festival is that on this occasion, tribal men and women have an opportunity to meet and interact freely and during this time, they select partners and marry by eloping.
