Gujarati Raas Garba - Navratri Dandiya Festival in Gujarat

The Dandiya festival organized during navratri is one of the must see things that one should experience in Gujarat. Though the custom of participating in raas garba is quite old and is followed in many parts of India but there is something magical and truly unforgettable about Navratri Festival of Gujarat.

Navratri Festival Celebration

Navratri is a festival wherein the entire 9 days are spent in fasting and in offering prayers to the goddess Shakti or Amba. One of the major cities to witness the navratri dandiya festival is Ahmedabad which is also known as cultural capital of the state. Also Surat, Rajkot, Vadodara are to visit during Navratri Festival.

Navratri Festival of Gujarat

In Gujarat, Gujarati people perform Sheri garba in large circle instead of small groups. Another aspect which makes the navratri dandiya festival unique in Gujarat is that security is a major issue with the organizers. Care is taken to ensure that all the members opting to play the raas garba are issued photo identity passes. Without that, they are not allowed to enter.

Navratri Dresses

The dresses or the traditional costumes are a must to be worn during the navratri dandiya festival. It is indeed a colourful sight to see both men as well as women dressed in colourful attires replete with mirror work and embroidery.

Navratri Garba Steps

Even the sticks which are the most important prop during the raas garba are also coloured with colourful ribbons. With Dandiya in hand people play Garba in circle.

To sum it all, you have to attend Navratri Festival in Gujarat to witness and experience this fun filled affair between traditional values and contemporary styles to believe the trend.
