Himachal Pradesh

Fairs and Festivals



Minjar is a seasonal fair of Chamba for celebrating the rains and the flowering of maize. It is held in August. People from all  parts of Chamba and even from other areas of Himachal Pradesh travel long distance to watch the week-long celebrations. Besides the famous folk-dances of Gaddis, there are plentiful music and trade. On the concluding day the devotees offer Minjars (maize flowers) and coconuts to god Varuna at Ravi river.
