Shahnama Tours What to Experience Kashmir Fairs & Festivals

Kashmir Fairs & Festivals

Baisakhi in Kashmir, Fairs and Festivals in Kashmir, Kashmir Fairs Festivals Shahnama Tours offers you an opportunity to glimpse the colorful and happening festivals of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The most commonly celebrated festivals in Kashmir are Lohri, Baisakhi, Bahu mela, the Jhiri mela, the Mansar food and craft mela, Chaitre Chaudash mela and the Purmandal mela. The Navratras are celebrated with festivities all over Kashmir, but a special mela is held at the Kheer Bhawani temple in the Tulla Mulla village. Tours and travel to the state of Kashmir gives you a chance to participate in the other popular festivals such as the Hemis festival and the Sindhu Darshan festival.

Lohri is popularly known as Makar sankranti all over India. In Kashmir, especially in the rural areas, young boys visit elders and newly wed couples and ask for gifts and presents. Young boys move around in colorful processions and perform the Chhajja dance.

The Jhiri Mela is held annually in the memory of a poor farmer who according to popular belief committed suicide to protest against the unfair demands of his landlord.

The Chaitre Chaudash Mela is held during the months of March-April at Uttar Behni, a village located at a distance of 25 kilometers from Jammu.

Kashmir The Purmandal Mela is held at Purmandal that is located at a distance of 39 kilometers from Jammu. This fair has a special significance as it is celebrated on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. This festival marks the wedding celebrations of Lord Shiva with the Goddess Parvati.

The festival of Navratri is celebrated with great fervor. People fast, take holy dips and pray during this festival.

The Hemis Festival is a religious fair that is held at the Hemis Gompa located in Ladakh. This festival began 12 years back and is marked by masked dances and other festivities.

The Sindhu Darshan Festival is celebrated in honor of the River Indus, locally known as the Sindhu River.

Shahnama Tours offers tourists information about tours and travel packages to several places in the state of Kashmir where these fairs and festivals take place at different seasons of the year.
