Day 21 Baneshwar Festival part 1

Today we visited the Baneshwar festival, held each year over three days during which the tribal group called Bhils come together at the confluence of two rivers to honor those in their family who have died in the past year. Thousands of them come to this remote place by any means they can.

 

It is both a spiritual festival and a fair where attendees can enjoy entertainment, buy goods, and meet each other.
