Khatushyamji Fair, Rajasthan - Fairs and Festivals in India

Khatu Shyamji Temple is an important pilgrimage site in Rajasthan. However it is more popular for the annual fair that takes in the month of either February or March. The shrine is located at a distance of 48 kilometers from district of Sikar. From Jaipur this site is easily accessible. The mela or fair takes place on the occasion of Phalgun Sudi Dashmi and lasts till Dwadashi. It lasts for three days and a large number of devotees flock the fair.

As is the case with Indian ceremonies this ceremony too is related to legends. It is said that when the battle of Kurukshetra (Mahabharata) was about to commence the grandson of Bhima (one of the Pandavas) expressed his desire to participate in the battle. Lord Krishna realized that if he took part in the battle the Pandavas would easily win because of his valor and justice will remain undelivered. So Krishna appeared in the disguise of a Brahmin and asked for Barbarik`s (Bhima`s grandson) head. Without any qualms he complied. Krishna was greatly moved by this sacrifice.
In return of this sacrifice he was blessed with 2 boons by the lord. He was able to witness the battle of Kurukshetra from a hilltop. He was also to be worshipped as Shyam.

Khatu Shyamji is famous for its Shyamji temple. There is a steady stream of devotees the year round, but lakh of them gather at the annual fair from Phalgun Sudi Dashmi to Dwadashi.

Apart from being a place of pilgrimage, a large number of people come for the Jadula ceremony (the first time all hair is shaved off the head) of their children.

The name Shyam belongs to Lord Krishna himself. It was the result of the boon that even today people worship Khatu Shyamji.

Indian fairs are characterized by vitality, crowd and resplendence. Khatu Shyamji fair is no exception in this regard. Well-decorated shops, several kinds of shows and sweet tidbits are available for the visitors. Joy rides are also part of Khatu Shyamji fair in Rajasthan.

Every year hoards of devotees visit the Shyamji Temple at Khatu Shyamji especially at the annual fair lasting from Phalgun Sudi Dashmi to Dwadashi. The Khatu Shyamji Fair of Rajasthan usually lasts for three days which falls in the month of February or March. Other than the Shamji Temple, the other attraction of the fair is the Jadula ceremony for young children in which the child’s head is shaven clean for the first time.
