Culture of mandi

The people of Mandi are very fond of folk music and dance. The most popular folk dance is Banthra, which is performed in theatrical shows in the city. Banthra is also recognised as the official folk dance of the Mandi District. The Mandi Shivaratri Fair is extremely popular in the city and is celebrated annually over a period of seven days in the month of March. The festival was first celebrated in 1526 to commemorate the foundation of Mandi. \n\nAnother annual tradition of the city is a half marathon that is organised within the city. The people of Mandi have fostered an interest in art over the years. They excel in stone and metal work, and tourist can buy a lot of these to take back home as souvenirs. Beautifully woven rugs, shawls and carpets are some of the other options and the wooden sculptures found in the region are quite beautiful.
