It is one of the biggest festivals of Rajasthan. The
SHISH appeared on Falgun Sudi Ekadashi (11th of Shukla
Paksha - Falgun month) and hence the fair is organised
from 9th to the 12th of the same month.
An estimated million devotees visit the temple during
these four days from all corners of the country. There
is virtually no vacant space in the town during this
period. The Govt. of Rajasthan takes care of the law and
order during the fair.
Hundreds of stalls are put throughout the town selling
sweets, food stuff, music cassettes, books etc. Special
arrangements are made for feeding the devotees in almost
all the Dharamshalas and Vishram Grihas.
There is celebration and festivity in the moods of the
devotees who wait for hours in long serpentine queues
for a moment's glance of the deity.
Special trains & buses also ply during the mela. The
whole town along with the temple is illuminated.
