Northwestern India is all tied up in the sacred thread of devotion for Maa Gauri.
This year, Gangaur is already halfway through when it enters April. Nevertheless, the singing and dancing continue in the same spirit as the first. This 18-day festivity is as much about cultural merriment as is about traditional rituals.
An iconic festival of Rajasthan, Gangaur smears its cities like Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and more in rainbow hues. Watch women singing and dancing as they celebrate the prosperity that Maa Gauri brings along every year.
This festival is music-lovers’ paradise where they experience traditional musicians strumming musical instruments. Dancers catch up in this breeze of music and match it with their flowing dance steps.
Each day of this revelry ends with fireworks…and the last day sees immersion of the bejewelled goddess.
