Agra Local Customs: 24 reviews and 37 photos


Bateshwar lies on the banks of the Yamuna river around 70kms from Agra. During the October and November there is a large fair which happens between Shashtki of Kartik month to Panchami of Agrahayan month. Because Bateshwar is an important cutural and spiritual centre, devotees come to the town en-mass to worship Lord Shiva and also take holiday dips in the Yamuna River. The usual market atmosphere is around and some serious buying and selling of livestock also takes place.
