Raksha Bandhan

Plan Your Tour
Raksha Bandhan is an enchanting Indian Festival that glorifies and strengthens the beautiful relationship between a brother and sister. The festival of Rakhi is celebrated on the full moon in the month of Shravana or Savana that corresponds to the month of July - August according to Gregorian Calendar. Hence the festival of Rakhi is also called 'Rakhi Purnima'. The festival is being celebrated since Vedic Period and is revered even in the modern times. Sisters experience extreme joy as they tie the sacred thread of Rakhi on the wrist of their brother and pray for their long life. Brothers too vow to stand by their sisters through thick and thin.

Raksha BandhanRituals of Raksha Bandhan :
The festival of Rakhi is eagerly awaited by brothers and sisters in India. On this day sisters fast till they complete the ceremonies of Rakhi. Dutifully following the tradition, sisters apply red tilak on brother's forehead, tie the most beautiful Rakhi or Raksha and perform an arti of him. After this brother is given a small sweet to eat. The simple ceremony symbolizes sister's sincerest prayers for the health and well being of their brother. Brothers too bless their sisters and promise to protect their sister's honor at the cost of their life. Brothers and sisters strive to perform Rakhi ceremonies in person and in many families Rakhi is the time for joyous family reunion. However, sisters who cannot manage to meet their brother send Rakhi by post. The latest trend is to send E-Rakhi as more and more brothers and sisters are hooked on to net.
