Bhavnath Mahadev Fair

Bhavnath Mahadev Fair

Bhavnath Mahadev Fair, Bhavnath Mahadev Fair fairs festivals, Bhavnath Mahadev Fair travelLocation : Junagadh, Gujarat.
Held In February.
Duration : 5 Days.
Venue of The Fair : Bhavnath Mahadev Temple.


The Bhavnath Mahadev Temple, located at the foot of Mount Girnar in the city of Junagadh is the place of the Bhavnath Mahadev fair held for five days in February, during the festival of Mahashivratri.

Obeisance To Lord Shiva : (The Destroyer)
The worship of Lord Shiva takes place at midnight in this temple on the 14th day of the dark half of the month of Magh, corresponding with the month of February. When the 'puja' (prayer ceremony) starts, 'Naga Babas' (naked sages) living nearby, move towards the fair seated on elephants, holding flags and blowing conch shells. It is firmly believed that Lord Shiva himself visits the shrine on this occasion.

Girnar is said to be the abode of the nine 'Nathas' (lord and protector), who are immortal and eighty-four 'Siddhas' (spiritually elevated souls), all of whom also visit the temple in their invisible spiritual bodies.

Other Attractions
Visitors are served free meals by the organizers. Special stalls sell idols, rosaries or holy beads brought by vendors from Ayodhya and Mathura, utensils of brass and copper, sweets and fruits. The Bhavnath Mahadev Temple is surrounded by many equally ancient and holy places.
