Gangaur is a festival celebrated throughout Rajasthan and in some parts of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and West Bengal.
The festival is done by people to pay their respects to Goddess Parvati, also known as Gauri. It’s a festival to celebrate love and marriage. In the festival, both married and unmarried women participate with warmth and passion. People make clay sculptures of Parvati and Shiva, they offer prayers to them and dress the sculptures. Along with all these, people also observe a day-long fast. This is done because people believe that this will lead to a long and happy married life. Goddess Parvati is the goddess of love and marriage for Rajasthani people, and thus the festival is of utmost importance and joy to them.
