Why is Ayurved Jhansi Mahotsava Celebrated:
India is known for its many hued fairs and festivals that forms an integral part of the attraction of India. Each state, race and culture comes up with different fairs and festivals that are different from each other, each with different origin and each has a different way of celebration
Fairs and Festivals form an integral part of the living heritage of Uttar Pradesh. Jhansi Mahotsava in Uttar Pradesh is celebrated with much pomp and gaiety throughout the state. Jhansi was a stronghold of the Chandela Kings. It rose to prominence in the 17th century under the rule of Raja Bir Singh Deo. It earns much of its claim to fame from the activities of Rani Laxmi Bai who led her forces against the British in 1857 single handedly without much back up.
Ayurved Jhansi Mahotsava is celebrated to highlight the different Ayurvedic products that are made in Jhansi.
