Mahaveerji Fair is one of the most popular festivals of Rajasthan. The festival organized during Mahavir Jayanti honours the 24th Jain tirthankara, Shri Mahavir Swami. The festivities of Mahaveerji Fair include numerous fairs and festivals across Rajasthan. These celebrations underline the richness of this royal state with a legendary history and vibrant traditions. However, if you wish to see the real fervour of Mahaveerji Fair then visit the Mahaveerji temple located in an enclosure called the "katala". Mahaveerji temple has numerous beliefs associated with it. It is said that the idol of Mahavir Swami placed in the temple was found by a cobbler in a nearby hillock.
Mahaveerji Fair is held during the period between Chaitra Shukla Ekadasi and Baisakh Krishna Dwitiya. Devotees from all over the country flock at this temple to partake in the celebrations. They perform various rituals and make offerings like misri (crystallized sugar), sandalwood, saffron, white flowers and camphor to the deity. A grand Rath Yatra is also organised during the festival with pomp and show. The procession also include colourful dance performances and musical galas by the devotees. At the end of the festival, the idol of Mahavir Swami is taken to the bank of river Gambhiri in a golden chariot. Thereafter, the procession brings back the idol to the temple which is then restored at the vedi. This is followed by a grand pujan and ashta-argha. During the evening hours, devotees lit clap lamps.
