Dussehra Festival Kota
 

On tour to Rajasthan don't skip a visit to Kota. Kota has once served as the integral part of the former Rajput kingdom of Bundi. In 17th century it was formed into a distinct princely state. Today, it is widely known for its imposing palaces, landscaped gardens and numerous attractive monuments. Located on the banks of Chambal River and drained by its affluents, Kota is a magnificent scenic spot to visit. However, apart from historical importance and picture-perfect beauty, Kota also reigns supreme among tourists for holding gala celebrations for Dussehra Festival. The Dussehra Festival, Kota can be touted among the major attractions of the town.

During the Dussehra Festival in Kota a very vibrant and colorful mela or fair is organized. This festival is usually held every year in the Hindu month of Ashvin that begins from September and ends in October. This festival has a mythical association. According to the legend, this event is held to celebrate the triumph of Lord Rama over the Demon King Ravana. This most fiery fight between demon and god continued for 10 days in which evil had to face defeat at last.

The very catchy feature of the Dussehra Festival, Kota is the theatrical representation of this encounter. In this dramatic enactment both children and elders take part with great fervor and enthusiasm. In the whole drama the portion that attracts children to the fullest extent is the role of the Vanar Senas or the monkey forces led by the monkey God Hanuman. The drama is personified to such an extent that audience starts singing slogans in praise of Lord Rama. However the climax of the drama comes with setting fire on the gigantic effigies of the defeated 10 headed Ravana along with his brother Kumbhkarana and his son Meghnath. The effigies are basically built of paper and bamboo. These are packed with crackers which actually help in setting fire.

Once the effigies of the demons are burnt people change their course of activities and bask in various other festivities during Kota's Dussehra Festival. Of the numerous celebrations, cattle fair in Kota is the must-witnessed sight.
