Vibrant colours, traditional songs, beautifully decorated idols and dancing in the streets, the Gangaur festivities will truly fill your soul will love, light and hope. A celebration of the love between Gan (Lord Shiva) and his consort Gauri (Goddess Parvati), this annual festival transforms the Rajasthani states of Jaipur and Udaipur into a grand collage of traditions and culture.

Held in March and April every year, Gangaur is celebrated by women with full enthusiasm and devotion. They don traditional clothes in eye-catching colours, decorate their hands with radiant orange-red mehendi patterns, carry painted earthen pots on their heads, and make scrumptious delicacies in the purest ghee. The heady dances, social dramas and colourful fairs in Jaipur and Udaipur during this time are what make this celebration a grand affair.

Here’s a glimpse of this joyous occasion, where the women of Jaipur and Udaipur come together to celebrate as one!
