Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Sojat, Pali


Sojat is a city located on the bank of the River Sukri, in the district of Pali. This city was known as Tamravati in ancient times. This place is famous for a fort and shrines such as Sejal Mata Temple, Chaturbhuj Temple and Chamunda Mata Temple.

Henna plantation, a herbal plant used for temporary body tattooing, is one of the most popular attractions of the city. The leaves of this plant are mashed into a thin paste and the paste is applied on the hands and feet by Indian women in various designs. Generally, Indian women apply this paste known as mehandi on various auspicious occasions including marriage and festivals. This conventional art form is now famous worldwide and has been adopted in the international fashion world as well. Hence many foreign tourists on their way to Mount Abu pay a visit to this place.

Tourists can also see the Dargah of Pir Mastan, Temple of Ramdeoji, Desuri and Kurki fort in Sojat. This city is the birthplace of Mirabai, a poetess who dedicated her whole life for the worship of the Hindu deity Krishna.
