Fairs and Festivals


The Jwalamukhi fair

The Jwalamukhi fair is also held twice a year during the Navratri of Chaitra and Assiy. The devotees go round the 'Jwala Kund' in which the sacred fire burns, making their offerings. Nearby is 'Gorakh Tibbi' a centre of the Gorakhpanthi Naths. The Holi fair of Sujanpur is different from the Holi celebrations elsewhere. Folk-dances, songs, plays, wrestling matches and athletics are some of the attractions of the fair.
