Mewar Festival

Mewar Festival
Place: Udaipur, Rajasthan
Time: April
Significance: Spring Festival
Date: 20.3.2018 - 22.3.2018

Mewar is celebrated in the beautiful city of Udaipur, Rajasthan to welcome spring. It coincides with the festival of Gangaur celebrated all over Rajasthan and has a unique charm about it. The festival is very significant for women. It is a time for them to dress up in their best clothes and participate in the festival. The main highlight of the festival is the procession of colorfully attired women carrying images of the Goddess Gauri (Parvathi) to the gangaur ghat of Lake Pichola. 

Festivities include joyous singing, dancing, devotional music concerts and firework displays. Once the religious part of the festival is over, it is time for cultural events where Rajasthani culture is portrayed through songs, dances and other programmes. The festival culminates with an impressive fireworks display. A procession of boats in the lake starting from the lake palace offers a fitting finale to this splendid celebration.
