Minjar fair in Chamba town is the main State level Function of Chamba
District. It has preserved the age-old traditions of the erstwhile
princely and prosperous Chamba State. Chamba as situated on the banks of
the mighty Ravi and perched on hillock looks wonderful and then to cap
it all is Chowgan-a big level ground where this festival is held.
A colourful procession is taken out in traditional gaiety and all the
officers, V.I.P. s and other respectable town people participate in it.
The games, sports and cultural programmers are also held to make it more
entertaining. Minjar is offered to the river Ravi-the river of life and
prosperity of Chamba.
