Sheetla Mata Fair is held in March-April, the month of
Chaitra on Krishna Paksh , in village Seel-Ki-Doongri
(Jaipur). Doongri is a hillock on top of which the shrine of
Sheetla Mata stands. The fair is held in her honour for a day
every year. The fair attracts hordes of visitors from far
and wide. People believe that epidemics spread because of the
wrath of Sheetla Mata and hence they worship her and make
offerings so that she may be pacified. The deity is represented
by a red stone.
A temporary market comes up at the fair and the rural
folk can be seen trading in wares such as shoes, clothes,
foodstuff, utensils and agricultural implements A cattle
fair is also organised during the fair.
