Marwar Festival

Marwar FestivalThe Marwar Festival is held annually in the picturesque town of Jodhpur in Rajasthan. It is held during the period between September-October and lasts for two days. The significance of the Marwar festival is that it is a celebration of the heroism, courage and gallantry of the erstwhile Rajput rulers.

The festival showcases the best of the art and culture of Jodhpur and the exotic Marwar region of Rajasthan. The enchanting Mehrangarh fort provides the ideal backdrop for the gala cultural programs and music recitals.

The Mehrangarh fort is built on a perpendicular hill and looking down from a height of about 100 meters, the fort appears rugged and impenetrable from outside but houses some of the most intricately carved panels and latticed windows. The cannons, placed strategically on the ramparts are well preserved and impressive. It is in the backdrop of such an amazing setting that the cultural programmes are held. Folk musicians of Jodhpur sing sentimental ballads eulogizing the valor and courage of the rulers of Marwar and paying tribute to them in the most befitting manner.Call Us At 9509025926

Apart from folk music, folk dance is also staged during the two day festivities. Renowned folk dancers of Jodhpur and Mandore perform amazing dance recitals which are impeccably choreographed bringing to life the legends and parables of this enchanting land of the Marwars.

The Marwar Festival is also held with great fanfare at Mandore located just 8 kms. outskirts of Jodhpur. Mandore has traditionally been the capital of Marwar and is a place of immense historical importance. Mandore's most important landmark is the Hall of Heroes. Sixteen gigantic figures carved out of a single rock depicting popular Hindu and folk deities stand there in bright colors and are very well maintained. Needless to say, during the Marwar festival, this enchanting Marwar bastion springs to life with vibrant colors and the symphony of the folk music and dance which are essential ingredients of the festival.
