The Desert Festival - an extravaganza of colour, music and festivity, is held every year during the Hindu month of Magh (February). It has, on display, some of the most fondly preserved components of Rajasthan's rich culture.

Dare-devil Display

Basking Muscians

Add to this the warmth and cheerfulness of the people of Rajasthan who welcome the tourists from the depths of their hearts. The excitement heightens as the Maru-Shri (Mr. Desert) Competition and the turban-tying competition gets underway. In the turban-tying competition and tug of war, Indians compete with foreigners which adds to the fun of the festival. An interesting event of the festival is the Moustache Competition. In this competition the prize is given to the man with the longest moustache.
The grand finale is a trip to the sand dunes on the moonlit night, where one can also experience the pleasure of a camel ride. The folk artistes performing on the sand dunes takes the enchantment to its crescendo. Have a good time at the Desert Festival - a unique blend of colour, rhythm and melody.
