Festivals and Fairs in Rajasthan

The State of Rajasthan in India, is vibrant and exotic in every sense of the word. Amidst the awe-inspiring architecture, the colour-filled marketplaces and the myriad topography of the Desert, one also finds a host of fairs and festivals that are unique in themselves.

The people of Rajasthan celebrate each occasion, be it religious, at the time of harvest or to mark the change of season. Participating in these various fairs and festivals is truly a recognition of the importance of celebrating each act of life in all its entirety.

Some of the most famous of such festivals are –

Desert Festival, Jaisalmer (Jan-Feb.): Set in Jaisalmer, the heart of the Rajasthani desert, this includes a range of folk performers like musicians, snake charmers, puppeteers and ballad singers. Added to this are activities like turban-tying competitions, camel sports and traditional wrestling matches. The high point of this festival comes at its end when there is a sound and light show on the desert sand on a moonlit night.
