The Baneshwar Fair is celebrated with much pomp and fanfare by the tribal population of Rajasthan in region of Dungarpur, where they are joined by tribals of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat as well. A religious event involving traditional rituals, the Baneshwar Fair is spread over a period of four days.
The Baneshwar fair is held at a small delta formed by the river Som and Mahi. In fact, the fair is actually a merger of two different fairs: one which used to be held in honor of Lord Shiva and another fair which started after the construction of the Vishnu temple by Jankunwari, daughter-in-law of Mavji, a highly revered saint considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
Besides its spiritual significance, the Baneshwar Fair is also a colorful affair replete with cultural programmes, magic shows, animal shows and acrobatic feats that are sure to delight an avid photographer. A number of gaily-decorated stalls occupy the place of pride in the Baneshwar Fair and sell everything ranging from essential items to handicrafts. If you visit the Baneshwar fair during your Travel to Rajasthan, you will surely agree that it is an unconventional but a very enjoyable affair. It may be reminded that the Baneshwar Fair is being held from 5th February to 9th February in 2009.
