History

The best known of Gujarat’s fairs is held in August-September at the historic shrine of Tarnetar (Tirneteshwar) a holy site locally believed to have been the original course of river Ganga. The fair is held at Thangadh in Saurashta. The Tarnetar Fair is connected with Arjun, the Pandavas hero. It is believed that he won the hand of princess Draupadi in a swayamvar (an assembly of princes where a princess chooses her suitor.) Arjun showed his skill at archery to win Draupadi.

Famous for

The fair is a blaze of colour. As matchmaking is an objective of the fair, women are brightly dressed and bedecked in jewellery, and men wear colourful turbans, embroidered jackets, heavy bracelets and embroidered shoes to attract a suitable bride. Eligible men also carry richly embroidered umbrellas/ Women select their partner as they would in a ‘Swayamwara’ or line-up, and families are involved for the arrangements after the selection. This fair is a showcase of folk dances like the Hudo and other traditions of Saurashtra. It is also a good opportunity to see the colourful costumes and attractive ornaments of pastoral groups like the Bharwad.
