This festival is dedicated to Gauri, a manifestation of Goddess Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva, and commences a day after Holi and lasts for 18 days. Images of Gauri are ornamented and offerings are made. Gauri is worshipped by unmarried women for blessing to get a good husband and by married women for the welfare of their husbands. This is also an auspicious day for young people to select their life partners. Colourful processions make it a fascinating spectacle.
