Fair and Festivals of  Karnataka

 Apart from the many festivals celebrated in India, Karnataka has its own set of festivals which have a special significance for the people of Karnataka.

Pattadakkal Dance Festival

Delicately carved temples rich in detail, stand still at Pattadakkal, the ancient capital of the chalukyan kings. A festival of dance celebrates this marvelous heritage. It is celebrated in the month of January.

Makar Sankranti

It is a celebration of the occasion of the 'ascent' of the sun to the north (Uttarayana). In Maharashtra, Karnataka as well as parts of Andhra, Makar Sankranti is a day of goodwill and friendship. Sesame Ladoos and sugar drops are distributed as a symbol of the need to be generous and kind to everyone. Women wear new clothes, new glass bangles and hold get-togethers to share sweets and gifts. A new bride is given ornaments made of sugar drops and her new relatives are invited to meet and welcome her at a haldi kumkum celebration.

Hoysala Mahotsava (Belur - Helebid)

The dance festival held at Belur and Helebid is a magnificent event. The Splendid Hoysala temples with their sculptural extravaganza, make the perfect venue for this cultural feast. It is celebrated in the month of March.

Ganesh Chaturthi

The images of Lord ganesha are installed and worshipped and on the last day these are taken in processions to be immersed in flowing water. The sea front, packed with people, is a spectacular sight.
