HomeWelcome to 86th Howly Raas Mahotsav (From 16th November to 30th November this year)

Raas Mahotsav is celebrated in every year at Howly town and a grand fair is held centered round this festival.

The festival and fair attract large crowds of people not only from all over the district of Barpeta, but also from neighboring district including adjacent state of West Bengal.

This Raas Mela has developed a tradition of its own and holds a separate identity for its uniqueness and indigenous clarity. Uniqueness in the sense that though it is a religious festival it is a symbol of secular mood in the district. The Mela symbolizes brotherhood irrespective of the religious diversity. Indigenous in the sense that though all kinds of trade and business and entertainments are there, the Mahotsav has been able to retain itís indigenousness by keeping programmes like Oja-Pali, Dhulia, Yatra, Kabigaan, Naam Kirtan among others. A brief sketch of the Mela is given below.
