A big fair is held here about a fortnight after Diwali and for a duration of five days. Great importance is said to be the tank which is believed to have been dug by Hanuman. The circumference of that particular tank is about 3km and there are temples on its sides. A majority of the pilgrims consider it as very auspicious to have a dip in the sacred tank in the early hours of the Puranmashi (full moon) night. A 30 feet wide path of circumambulation (Parikarma) runs round this scared tank. After the holy dip, the pilgrims take a round of the tank while chanting mantars and exchanging salutations,"Ram Ram".
Floating of tullas is a special feature of the fair. On the puranmashi night, women light lamps which are made out of kneaded flour and fed with pure ghee or mustard oil, place them on leaf plates or boat shaped carriers made of sarkanda reeds, and release them to float in the tank, reciting devotional songs and hymns, This ceremony called tulla toarna (floating of tullas) is believed to wash off the sins and to please Rama.
