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 women folk 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.
