Saharanpur’s local culture is akin to the rest of Uttar Pradesh. It boasts of its own traditional art form known as Ragni which is a technique of storytelling in poetry format. Interestingly, its cuisine bears the stamp of the various dynasties who passed by Saharanpur’s timeline. Predominantly vegetarian, the people liberally use milk products, vegetables and fruits in their cooking. However, a Mughlai flair can be detected by virtue of its mutton and paneer fare, spicy kebabs and Dum Biryani. Saharanpur is well known for sugar and mangoes with over 500 mango variations some of which are exported globally.\nMany festivals are celebrated with the pomp and gaiety typical of Indian festive fervour. Ram Navami, Diwali or ‘Festival of Lights’, Dussehra are major Hindu festivals along with Basant Panchami, associated with kite flying. Remarkably, one can find a thriving Punjabi settlement on the Exhibition Grounds arising from the sweat and toil of migrants from the Punjab post-Independence, who have made this city their home, and which has now become a seat of Punjabi cultural prominence in Saharanpur.
