Kaila Devi Fair Karauli is an extremely popular event dedicated to Goddess Kaila, an incarnation of Goddess Mahalakshmi. Yadava and Khinchi clans primarily worship the Goddess, who is their guardian deity. The vibrant event is held at the temple of Kaila Devi on the banks of Kalisil River in Rajasthan’s Kaila Village. It is an annual affair which is celebrated with full fervour during the Hindu calendar month of Chaitra (in the month of March or April).
The Kaila Devi Fair lasts for 17 consecutive days. Devotees from far and wide visit the temple in large number in order to pay their homage to Goddess Kaila. They make offerings of cash, coconuts, kohl, vermilion, bangles and sweets to the Goddess.
During this event, many devotees take part in various rituals associated with the worship of Goddess Kaila Devi. Out of all rituals, Kanak Dandoti is the most arduous and interesting ritual, observed by the successors of Goli Bhagat - a staunch devotee of the Goddess. As per the ritual, the followers of the Goddess cover a distance of 15 to 20 kms by lying prostrate. They create lines with their hands in that position then move forward to the line made by them and repeate this process till they reach the temple. Some devotees relax and eat food in between this whole process, while some complete the ritual without taking any food or rest.
This socio-cultural event also features brilliant performances by Mina tribal people who dance and sing in the praise of the deity. There are many shops that sell varieties of artefacts, souvenirs and other indigenous items. People also enjoy amusement rides and many kinds of delicacies at the fair. 'Languriya' - a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman located in the courtyard of the Kaila Devi temple; which is also a popular attraction here.
