THE BACKGROUND OF THE TEMPLES IN HIMACHAL PRADESH

"On the conclusion of the fair i.e. on third Sunday of the month Shravan (August), a procession, which is joined by thousands of local people and mela enthusiasts along with police bands and hill orchestra, starts from Akhand Chandi Palace and goes to the bank of the Ravi. A small platform is raised overlooking the river. A coconut, a rupee or a smaller coin, a fruit and a few paddy tentacles tied in a piece of 16han, a type of red cloth usually offered to the goddess, are usual offerings to the Ravi. Those, who cannot afford to make such offerings, do with paddy tentacles only. Folk songs are sung. The music is again played when the procession is on its way back to Chawgan." *$

Religious songs form another source of religious inspiration to the people of Himachal Pradesh.
