Mahaveerji Fair

INTRODUCTION
Among the myriad fairs and festivals of Rajasthan, the Mahavirji Fair has earned a special place of pride. Organized in Chandan Gaon, situated at a distance of about 176 kms from Jaipur, Mahavirji Fair, Mahavirji is held in the honor of the 24th Jain tirthankara, Shri Mahavir Swami. The fair generates a lot of interest among the Jain population who participate in the event with a lot of enthusiasm. A majority of those who come visiting the fair, are the devout followers of Mahavir Swami and belong to the Digambar sect of the Jains. The Mahavirji Temple is the site where the fair is held every year. The temple is positioned within an enclosure locally called the "katala". The temple is consecrated to Mahavir Swami. If the popular belief is to be given any credence, this particular image of Mahavir Swami was unearthed by a leather worker from the nearby hillock.

DESCRIPTION
The Mahavirji temple is located in an enclosure known as 'katala' and houses the image of Mahavir Swami believed to have been dug out by a leather worker from Devta-Ka-Tila, a nearby hillock. There is a Man-Stambha (tower of glory) made of marble in front of the temple. The temple is maintained by the chief priest called Bhattarak and assisted by Brahmacharis (his disciples). The image of Mahavirji is washed followed by pujan and ashta-argha (eight oblations). In the evening aarti is performed. Ghee dees are lit and the offerings comprise of rice, white and yellow flowers, sandalwood, camphor, saffron, mishri (crystallised sugar), and dry fruits.

The major attraction is the Rath Yatra. The fair of Mahavirji reaches its peak on Baisakh Krishna Dwitiya when the image of the deity is taken to the bank of river Gambhiri in a grand procession for Kalash Abhishek. The golden chariot (rath) is drawn by bullocks. After the ceremony, the procession returns with the same grandeur and the image is restored to the temple. The pilgrims gather at the temple to worship, meditate and seek the blessings of the saint with folded hands. During the evening offering the temple is illuminated with lights.

Permanent shops exist at the site, selling food grains, cloth and general merchandise. Temporary shops spring up at the fair and cater to the needs of the visitors. Lots of Rajasthan handicrafts are at a display during this fair.
