Fairs and Festivals


Sovi Jatras

In Baisakhi the Sovi Jataras take place at the temple of Naina Devi. These last for five days and people especially the Gaddis, returning to their hill home participate in these in large numbers. The 'Dangi' dance is one of the main attraction of this fair. The women at the fair sing songs about the exemplary life and sacrifices of the Goddess Naina Devi and offer ritual Puja with beautifully arranged platters at the spot where the goddess had sacrificed her life.
