Gangaur is a festival celebrated in Rajasthan and is observed throughout the state with great fervor and devotion by women. Women worship Gauri, the wife of Lord Shiva during March–April. It is the celebration of spring, harvest, marital fidelity, and childbearing. Gana is a synonym for Lord Shiva and Gaur, which stands for Gauri or Parvati who symbolizes Saubhagya (marital bliss). The unmarried women worship her for being blessed with a good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health, and long life of their husbands and for a happy married life. The festival commences on the first day of the Hindu month of Chaitra, the day following Holi, and continues for 16 days.

The ladies decorate their hands and feet by drawing designs with Mehndi (Henna paste). On the final day there is procession, the women bid farewell and the idols of Gana and Gauri are immersed in water.
