Garia Festival celebrated in Tripura

Garia Festival celebrated in Tripura

Garia festival is an important festival for the Tripuri tribal community of the state.

The Garia dance is very popular among the Tripuris and the Reangs.

Symbolic of the worship of deities as well as of the socio-economic activities of the households, these dances represent hunting, fishing, food-gathering and various other activities.

Garia Puja

The Garia Puja is usually held from the beginning of the last day of the month of Chaitra till the seventh day of the month of April (Vaishakha).

They offer prayers to a bamboo pole whom they considered as their Lord Garia and sought His blessings for a good and prosperous life.

The devotees sacrifice roosters as part of the rituals during the puja.

The puja is followed by traditional dance derived from the Garia dance or the dance of Shiva and other cultural activities.
