The Mewar Festival is celebrated to welcome the advent of
spring. It coincides with the festival of Gangaur in Udaipur
and has a unique charm about it. The festival of Gangaur is very
significant for women of Rajasthan. It is a time for them to dress up in
their best clothes and participate in the festival.
They gather to dress the images of Isar and Gangaur and then carry them in a ceremonial procession through different parts of the city. The procession winds its way to the Gangaur Ghat at Lake Pichhola. Here, the images are transferred to special boats amidst much singing and festivity.
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. Like other fairs and festivals celebrated throughout the state, there is a lot of activity, which keeps the participants in a joyful frame of mind, eager to enjoy every moment.
