Dolmela is celebrated at the Dol Talab (Pond) in Baran City. Starting from the holy occasion of Jaljhulni Akadshi, the fair lasts 15 days. It is considered to be one of the major fairs in Rajasthan. The main attraction of the mela is a large Shobha Yatra (procession) which feature about 54 Dev Vimans (holy statue carriages) also known as Dol, of all the major temples of the city. A number of Akhadas (gyms) also display their Kartab (physical prowess) in this procession. The procession starts from the Shreeji temple and concludes at the Dol Talab where all the Dev Vimans are worshipped. The deities are later returned to their respective temples. This fair, a major social event irrespective of socio-religious differences, is a symbol of communal harmony in the area.
