Minjar Festival

Cultural in Chamba

Every year since 935, Chamba has celebrated the annual harvest with the Minjar Festival in honour of the deity Raghuvir (an incarnation of Rama) – nowadays a week of processions, sports, folk dance and music and a vast flea market on the Chowgan.

Minjar – shoots of maize – are offered to Varuna, god of rains.
