Fairs & Festivals
Ghotul is a well known event in the tribal life here and has aroused considerable interest from anthropologists to study its tradition. Ghotuls are regarded as a shrine, built by Lingo Pen, a Gond tribe hero. Both boys and girls are allowed to spend a night out in the ghotul (kind of a rest house), every week. Here, the unmarried boys of the village learn songs and dance from their leader. Besides, every week, there is a dance carnival as well, in which the girls also take part. Moreover, it is treated like a pilgrimage. In Jagdalpur, Dussehra is celebrated with much enthusiasm every year.
