This 10-days long cultural bonanza provides a kaleidoscopic view to the rich and vibrant cultural heritage India, bringing together a combination of rich art & crafts, cuisines, music and dance in the backdrop of the beautiful Taj Mahal.

This event, organized and managed by Taj Mahotsav Committee, was started in 1992 as a crafts mela with the aim to encourage artisans and provide them with a platform to showcase and sell their craftmanship at reasonable prices. With years, renowned artists in the culinary, art, music and dance fields kept getting associated with the festival, adding to the widespread experience it offers today.
