Basant Panchami at Gurudwara Chheharta Sahib

The Basant Panchami at Gurudwara Chheharta Sahib is the most famous festival of Amritsar which is held on the 5th day of the bright half of the month of Magh ( January- February). The celebrations usually starts early morning, continue throughout the night and ends on the next day afternoon. Kirtan darbar (chanting of hymns and poems belonging to Sikh literature) will be conducted on the whole night.

Kite-flying is the major attraction of Basant Panchami and competitions are also conducted . On the eve of Basant Panchami, people start flying colorful kites and during the process each of them tries to cut off the other person's kite. The winner has to pull through as much of the twine as he can without any loss of time. It is very thrilling and funny to watch the kites fighting high up in the air.

The fair is organized by the local Gurudwara management along with the corporation of the various social service organizations. Medical and first aid services and free lunch are arranged during the occasion.
