You can keep it in your home or puja altar. Also serves as an ideal gift for your friends and relatives. It is believed that after a temporary long sacrament Gauri and Shiva reunited on this day. The small doll like Idols of the Shiva and Gauri are made of wood. These divine male and female entities are called ‘Isar’ and ‘Gangaur’.
Gangaur festival is held in the month of 'Chaitra'. Ganguar is worshipped using wood statues of Isar (Shiva) and His consort Gangaur (Parvati), beseeching them for marital bliss. The legend is that Shiva once teased His consort Parvati by dressing up as a cobbler. In retaliation, Parvati also appeared as Bhil tribal women before Shiva to tease Him and have some fun out of it.
This festival is specifically meant for women. The unmarried women worship Gangaur, for being blessed with a good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health and long life of their husbands and happy married life.
