Gangaur Festival (Rajasthan)
March 18 to March 19

Celebrated in the honour of the goddess of abundance, the Gangaur festival is when young girls pray for a spouse of their choice. The festivities include a procession being taken to the closest water body with the women carrying images of the goddess on their heads.

The places to be (and to see pretty Indian girls dressed in their traditional best) include Bikaner, Jodhpur, Nathdwara and Jaisalmer. And just in case you're wondering what happens to these girls when they get married, well they simply pray for their husbands!

Elephant Festival (Jaipur, Rajasthan)
March 24

Should pretty much tell you what it is and where, shouldn't it? Processions of elephants decorated and groomed before a stunned audience displaying the splendour of the royal state of Rajasthan. Not to be missed also are the elephant polo matches and the elephant races.
