Dharmaraj Mela (Fair)

This Mela (fair) starts during the Ras Purnima (the full moon night of the month of Kirtik) at Dharmatala of Gangnia village, Alipur union of Satkhira Sadar and it lasts for about a month. This Mela takes place after setting up of the statue of and offering worship to Yudhisthira, the lord of justice. Yudhisthira is a homeless deity. He has no his own shelter. So, his statue is set in the open space under a banyan tree. After the end of the Mela the statue is left at that. Next year the abandoned statue is replaced by a new one. People of Paroi community perform this religious worship and observe this festival.
