Gangaur Goddess Aham Jewellery
Silver Idol of Goddess Gangaur in her beautiful Rajputi Poshak and Rajputi Jewellery.

Gangaur festival is one of the most colourful and prominent festivals of Rajasthan. 
Along with Rajasthan, Gangaur is also celebrated in some parts of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, and Gujarat.

As the name suggests, Gangaur-Gana stands for Lord Shiva and Gaur for Gauri or Parvati. The festival is celebrated in the glory of the companionship of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

The image that we see here is of a mid 19th Century silver idol of Gangur Goddess of Jodhpur, currently at the Mehrangarh Fort. 

An important part of the festival is the Gangaur procession, which enacts the scene of Gauri leaving her parental home with her husband. Gangaur festival celebrations in Mehrangarh fort are led by royal women who worship and adorn the silver idol of goddess Gauri in the courtyard of the Naganichya temple within the fort. The idol is then placed on a palanquin and taken out in a grand procession.
