Mangai Devi Yatra is observed in Ashada month. It is an important fair at the Mangai Devi Temple at Vadgaon in Belagavi. Goddess Mangai is a manifestation of Mother Goddess Shakti.
Mangai Devi Yatra is annually observed on Ashada Krishna Paksha Dwadasi tithi or the twelth day during the waning phase of moon in Ashada month as per traditional Hindu lunar calendar.
According to the rituals set by the ancestors of the Vadgaon village, the God of the village is to be presented with these chicks. Once you reach the temple the chicks you have brought with you are supposed to be tossed on to the roof of the temple! The view was a complete Jatra view with vendors selling all items on the road en route to the temple like toys, balloons, bindis, bangles, dishes, plates, show items and many more.
