Bhoj Fair is celebrated in the Gumman Village in Shimla which comes under the Rohru Tehsil. The fair is a three-day event dedicated to the honour of Lord Banshur/Lord Bansor, Lord Parshuram and Lord Kilbaru. It is held in the month of November every year and is celebrated primarily for the commanding deity or the Kul Devta, Devta Bansor. Devotees from nearby regions visit Gumman to offer their prayers to Lord Bansor. During the fair, the village transforms into a colourful and lively place. Devotees come in large numbers all dressed in beautiful traditional apparel and jewellery. This attraction is a perfect getaway for the offbeat traveller.
Bhoj Fair is a call for devotees to offer their prayers and be thankful for the blessings Lord Bansor showers on them. The idol of the prime deity is beautifully decorated with colourful clothing, flowers and garlands and taken out in a procession. Devotees flock in large numbers to carry the idols on their shoulders and get one glimpse of the beautiful idol. Carrying the palkhi that has the idol of the deity on their shoulders is a mark of respect and devotion. The fair also has fun rides, entertainment and the famous traditional Nati Dance. Anyone can join the Nati dancers and become a part of the event.
