Baneshwar or we can call it ‘Master of the Delta’ is derived from the revered Shiva Linga which is kept in the Mahadev temple in Dungarpur. The baneshwar festival is annually held at small delta formed by the river Som and Mahi. It is predominantly a tribal fair, (more than half of the gathering consisting of Bhil tribe of Rajasthan and nearby states) reveres Baneshwar Mahadev and Mavji.
A ceremonial aarti is held in the morning at the temple, people sing traditional folk songs sitting around bonfire every night and perform folk dances, magic shows, animal shows, acrobatic feats with joy rides and swings. The location of the fair is situated at a distance of 6.5 km from Sabla, a village on the Udaipur-Banswara-Dungarpur route which is 123 km from Udaipur.
For the convenience of pilgrims and tourists during the festival, the buses and other vehicles go right up to the bank of River Som.
