Location : 40 Kms From Bhuj, Gujarat.
Held In: February/March.
In Memory of : Saint Mekan Dada.
Duration:3 Days.

Around 40 kms from Bhuj, Dhrang Fair is famous for the samadhi of the famous saint Menkan Dada who served the community with great love and commitment and won their devotion. He was supposed to be the incarnation of Lakshmanji. A huge fair is held on Magh Vad when a large number of Dada's followers from different parts of Gujarat and Rajasthan arrive to the Samadhi and participate in spiritual rituals.

About The Saint
Born in 1720 AD, Saint Mekan Dada spent all his life serving the cause of humanity. He preached against untouchability and superstitions. Legend has it that Saint Mekan Dada had a dog and a donkey who used to go into the Rann daily, with water and food to quench the thirst and show the direction to the lost travellers.

Known for his simple living and high thinking, saint Mekan Dada left behind a legacy of his preaching, which earned him the esteem and devotion of generations to come.

At Dhrang, he gave up his life, where the fair is held every year for three days.
