These carnivals exhibit the cultural and social values of the inhabitants and traders associated with the queen of hills. Mussoorie has been the point of attraction since the British Raj and we can still find the legacy left behind by the British. This place was the place where mostly British people lived before the independence of India.
If you want to see the whole Mussoorie with its cultural and social essence, it’s recommended to attend the carnivals. The carnivals are regularly organized on different occasions to remind the people about the importance of every aspect of our society and the human association with that.
