To experience the colour and joy that fills the people of Rajasthan, visiting Udaipur during the Mewar festival is a highly recommended experience. The festival is observed to welcome the arrival of spring. The spirit of the festival can be seen throughout the state, but since Udaipur has always been the governing place of Mewar rulers, one can observe the distinct flavours of the festival here. The whole of Udaipur gets drenched in vibrant colours. Local markets and shops decorate their facades with bright lights and decorations. Coinciding with the Gangaur festival, the Mewar festival is equally significant for the womenfolk of Rajasthan. The festival is especially meant for women and presents them with an opportunity to dress in their finest and join the celebrations. Women assemble to dress the images of Isar (Lord Shiva) and Gangaur (Goddess Parvati) and carry them in a procession through the city, finally immersing them in the middle of Pichola Lake. Dances, songs, cultural events and a firework display are highlights of the festival.
