About Mela (fair)
Bhadraj temple is dedicated to lord Bal bhadra, brother of lord Krishna. Every year Bhadraj temple committee organizes a fair from 15th to 17th of august, in which thousands of devotees come to take blessings from lord Bhadraj. The trekking route from dhudhli village is of moderate level and most of the devotees visit the temple in the morning. The devotees offer milk and butter to the idol of the deity. The energy level of the fair is always high, which not only gives chance to the people to interact with each other but it also showcases various cultures and rituals of garhwal region. The fair helps in preserving social and cultural ethos of Garhwal region.
The amount of people visiting Bhadraj temple during this fair has increased over past few years.
