Magh Mela at Uttarkashi - Uttar Kashi Magha Mela

Magh Mela is one of the most popular fairs in Uttar Kashi district in Uttarakhand in India. It is observed in the Magh Month (January – February). Dolis, or palanquin, carrying Hindu Gods and Goddesses from various parts of Uttarkashi are brought on the first day of the fair to the Ramlila Ground at Uttarkashi.

Magh Mela lasts for more than a week. Today the fair is famous for the numerous stalls which display local produce and handicrafts.

It must be noted that the most famous Magh Mela takes place at Sangam in Prayag (Allahabad) in Uttar Pradesh. This is spread over two months and is noted for the spiritual bathing.
