Himalayan town of Chamba is bustling with people who have come from far and near to see
Minjar fair. The fair is a large one and there are stalls selling different household
items and food.
Merry-go-rounds, folk and pop dancers, singers of traditional Himachali songs, Punjabi
light music and the huge crowd enjoying themselves make the fair a lively and colourful
one. We found that Minjar is a well managed fair and a visitor to Chamba town at the time
of Minjar is likely to have a pleasing time.
