DEVIDHURA FAIR (near Lohaghat)


Devidhura Temple

Devidhura is situated at a small distance of 45 km from Lohaghat in Champawat district of Kumaon division. Devidhura fair is organised at Devidhura Temple, which is also known as Barahi Temple, on the auspicious day of Rakshabandhan.

 The image of Devi Barahi is kept in a locked casket made of brass. Every care is taken to protect the image of Devi from human view. A procession is taken out carrying the casket to  a mountain spring situated nearby where a blindfolded priest bathes the image with rituals and keeps it back in the casket.

 After that until next morning the goddess is worshipped. The speciality of Devidhura fair lies in the morning event of 'Bagwal'. Two group of men called as 'Khams' in the local language are made and they fight a mock battle in front of the temple by pelting stones at each other and protecting themselves with help of shields. Thousands of people, pilgrims and tourists watch the fair with keen interest.

Devidhura Fair is one of the grand fairs held in Kumaon region and thus is a treat to the eyes of the visitors.
