NarNarayan Dev Jayanti

6:30PM - 8:00PM: Raas utsav followed by Aarti

This festival marks the birth of Lord Nar and Lord Narayan, to Dharmadev and Murtidevi at Narayan Ghat along the banks of the Sabarmati River. Nar Narayan Dev took birth to defeat the evil demon Kunchi, who wanted immortality. By performing penance to please Lord Brahma, Kunchi requested Lord Brahma to grant him such a boon.

Brahma who himself was mortal could not do this so Kunchi asked for a thousand protective shields. Each shield would only be lost if one performed penance for a thousand years and then fought Kunchi for another thousand years. Kunchi felt invincible and began to harass the world and demigods. Hence Bhagwan incarnated as Nar and Narayan.
