Steeped in the magnificent royal history and culture of Rajasthan, the hospitality in Sariska is deeply influenced by its cultural connections. Similarly, the food, life and festivals here are typically those which are observed all across Rajasthan. Being located in largely a Hindu state, the people in Sariska celebrate popular festivals like Diwali, Lohri, Holi, etc with much grandeur.

But specific to this region is the Gangaur festival, celebrated all across Rajasthan with abundant excitement and enthusiasm. This festival usually falls in the Chaitra month according to Hindu calendar, usually between the months of March and April. Gangaur marks the union of Lord Shiva and and his wife Parvati and is considered auspicious for married couples and for young women seeking husbands. Women observe fasts and follow age-old traditions, unique to each sub-community in the state. This 18-day festival ends with the immersion of idols of Lord Shiva and Parvati in a lake or pond, culminating a series of vibrant songs and dances, rich banquets and a general air of joyous celebration.

Come, experience a slice of history and tradition and take home a slice of Sariska with you. Dish out your favourite festive clothes and be one with the people here!
