Bagwal Fair

Bagwal Fair is held at Barahi Temple on the day of Raksha Bandhan. Devotees believe that the huge stones in the premises of the temple were earlier used by the Pandavas for playing ball games. So during the fair, rival groups play a game by throwing stones at each other. They try to protect themselves by using big roof-like shields. They believe that by the grace of the goddess no one will be hurt. Bagwal Fair is celebrated with Devidhura Fair.
