Gangaur is a festival celebrated in the Indian state of Rajasthan and some parts of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Gangaur is the colourful and the one of the most important festivals of people of Rajasthan and is observed throughout the state with great fervor and devotion by womenfolk who worship Gauri, the consort of Lord Shiva during March–April.

It is the celebration of spring, harvest and marital fidelity. 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 good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health and long life of their husbands and happy married life.

Women gather to dress the images of Isar and Ganguar and then carry them in a ceremonial procession through different parts of the city. The procession winds its way to Gangur Ghat at Lake Pichhola. Here, the images are transferred to special boats amidst much singing and festivity. Once the religious part of the festival is over it is time for cultural events where Rajasthan's culture is portrayed through songs, dances culminates with an impressive fireworks display.
