Tarnetar Mela

September

Ahmedabad, Gujarat

A three-day cultural bonanza, the Tarnetar Mela is a rare event. During Bhadarva month, as you enter the confines of this pulsating hamlet, a tornado of romance, hues and melodies engulfs you. The USP of the fair is women seeking their prince charming; based on the legend of Draupadi’s Swayamwara. They perform mesmerising dances in traditional costumes and their marital status can be determined by the colour of their skirt (black – married, red – seeking a spouse), and even hopeful grooms leave no stone unturned in vying for brides.
