The unique festival of deity Sri Dev Bhabreshwar is held annually at Khobrawado, Calangute in North Goa. This festival is famously known as “Kelyanchi” or “Ghadanchi Jatra” (Festival of Banana Bunches), as devotees offer an entire bunch of bananas to this deity. The shrine is located on the famous beach stretch between Calangute & Baga.In a day, over 2500 bunches of bananas are offered to the deity. These bunches are then tied to a make-do wooden frame, over the deity, creating an aesthetic roof of banana bunches. The additional bunches (raw or ripe) are auctioned, every evening.This festival is celebrated every year in the month of February attracting thousands of locals and tourists.
