Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Old Pilibhit, Pilibhit


The roots of the village can be traced to the 15th century when it existed on the banks of the River Ghaghra, north east of the city. It is believed that it was inhabited by the banjara (gypsy) of the Pyria community which lived in houses made of mud and other material sourced from the woods.

It is believed that the name Pilibhit is derived from a yellow mud wall which once surrounded the area.
