Pushkar II Gangaur

Gangaur

Gangaur holds a special significance for the Rajasthanis. 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. This spring festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm and zeal all over Rajasthan. 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. The images of Gauri in colourful garb and embellished with amazing jewellery is a delightful assault of the visual senses. These are then taken out in procession with the town band.

The lake adds to the gaiety of Udaipur celebrations. Thousands of people from the country side come to take part in the procession of the year.
