Kharchi Festival

Kharchi or Khmarchi festival is a celebration for worship of the tutelary deity of the royal family of Tripura. Once prevalent only in the royal family, the worship of the Fourteen Gods has now turned into a festival of the general public of Tripura irrespective of caste or creed. The popular names of the Fourteen Gods are -Hara, Uma,Hari, Ma, Vani, Kumara, Ganapa, Bidhi, Kha, Abdi, Ganga, Sikhi, Kama and Himadri. Every year, on the eighth lunar day of the month of Asadha, the festival starts and continues for seven days at a stretch. The Kharchi festival has united the people of Tripura in the bond of fraternity.
