Ambubachi Mela

Ambubachi Mela, the unique and popular festival at Kamakhya Temple held in the month of June, attracts pilgrims from all over India. During the festival, the temple doors remain closed for three days. It is believed that during these days the mother Goddess undergoes her annual cycle of menstruation and the pool containing her yoni (uterus) turns red. Daily worship, other religious performances and farming works are suspended at that time. The doors are reopened on the fourth day and the deity is believed to attain fertility and bless the land with good crops. Red cloth is distributed among the devotees as an offering of the God.
