Jodhpur, Mon, 26 Apr 2010 ANI

Jodhpur, Apr 26 (ANI): Thousands of devotees, locals as well as tourists, are performing the pilgrimage of 'Yogi Shale' in Rajasthan's Jodhpur.


Dozens of elephants are also part of the festivities.


The fair is a grand religious festival, held after every three years.


Thousands of devotees, holy men and pilgrims, come from all over India to complete circumambulation of 125 - 150 kilometers during the seven-day festival.


"This fair is a Maha Kumbh fair of our Rajasthan, and by completing this circumambulation, all our wishes get fulfilled and I have also come here with the same purpose and I want people to visit such spiritual place," said Shanti Devi, a devotee.


Devotees believe they will be blessed with good fortune if they complete this circumambulation.


"In this month the devotees come from Jodhpur but other districts also to pay obeisance to thirty three crore gods and goddesses of India. The devotees walk on foot for seven days to complete the pilgrimage and take with them the blessing of the gods," said Amritram ji, a holy man.


Some compare the fair with Maha Kumbh Mela and believe a complete round of this yogi shale fair is as good as taking a round of four important religious places-Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Badrinath. (ANI)
