View image

A fourteenth century Nagar tradition of Betha Garaba was presented during Ahmedabad Heritage Festival. This was arranged in renowned Hatkeshwar Mahadev temple in Desai Pole, Khadia, Ahmedabad.

The tradition of Betha Garaba is very popular amongst nagar families in many cities in USA during navaratri. Local nagar associations and many nagar families have continued the tradition for more than 3 decades in USA. Recently a Betha Garaba was organized by Nagar Association Maryland (NAM) on October 12, 2008 in Greater Baltimore Temple. Nagar Association of Greater American Regions (NAGAR) congratulate NAM to continue such historical nagar tradition of Betha Garaba and celebrate it in the temple. Earlier in Maryland; it was organized by Jagrutiben Desai, Hemaxiben Munshi, Hemanginiben Vaishnav, Vandanaben Kharod, Anjaniben Anjaria, Hinaben Badashah, Deviben Mehta and many families in their home or a small hall. Please check the link for the detail of the latest Betha Garaba by NAM.
