Falgun Lakhi Mela of Khatu Shyamji


Falgun Mela is the biggest festival of Rajasthan. The head was revealed on Falgun Sudi Ekadashi, so the fair is actually organized from 9th to 12th of the same month.

Special Nishan Yatra is organized during Phalgun fair. This holy journey starts from Ringus which is 19 km away from Khatu Dham. In this journey, the devotees of Shyam ji go to the temple with a Nishan (flag) in their hands.

Special Bhajan Sandhyas are organized where famous bhajan singers come and provide spiritual entertainment to the devotees. Baba's devotees get lost in devotion and also dance on DJ.

Some devotees play with Gulal and relieve themselves in the spellbound prayer of Shyam Ji Baba. On the last day of the fair, special prasad of kheer and churma is made for Baba, which is later given to all the devotees.

Rath Yatra of Khatu Shyam


In the month of Falgun, at the time of Lakkhi fair, on the Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha, Baba Shyam goes on a city tour in the form of Rath Yatra to give darshan to the devotees.


There is only one day in the whole year when you can see Baba Shyam outside the temple also. Except this day, devotees have to go to the temple for Baba's darshan on all other days.

Birthday of Shyam Baba


Baba Shyam was born on the 11th day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Kartik, hence Kartik Shukla Ekadashi is celebrated as Shyam Janmotsav or Birthday. On this day devotees gather in Baba's court and also cut the cake.

Ekadashi and Dwadashi Mela of Khatu Shyam


Ekadashi and Dwadashi is a festival which has gained importance due to the fact that Shri Shyamji was born on the 11th day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Kartik.

Dwadashi is a festival where Shri Shyamji donated his head "Sheesh" to Lord Krishna during the war of Mahabharata.
