Khetlaji Fair

The famous shrine of Shri Sonana Khetlaji in the village Sonana of district Pali is the site of the two day Khetlaji fair, held every year during May-Jun. The fair attracts a large number of devotees who congregate here during the fair held in honour of the deity, Khetlaji. It is believed by many devotees that the deity has powers to grant wishes. Many devotees arrive to pray for fulfilment of their wishes or for thanksgiving, after their wishes have been granted.

The fair is a grand occasion for the local people from the adjoining area, who pour in, dressed in their best, right from day-break. It is also a gala occasion for shopping.. Body tattooing shops are also the hot-spots of activity and troupes of Gair dancers add colour to the festive spirits. However, it is the hundreds of horses at the fair that steal the show. Thoroughbred and well trained 'Marwari' horses perform many a trick and even dance to the rhythms of local drums, much to the amazement of the onlookers.

Sonana is 65 kms. from Pali. Pali is well connected by road and rail to major cities of the state.
