Goan traditional festivals are not only for entertainment, but also preserve culture, tradition as well as bring people together. A prime example of this is the famous “Sath Gavachi, Sath Bhavchi Ghodemodni festival at Thane-Sattari.

This festival is celebrated every three years. The 14 dancing horses are the main attraction of this festival. It is believed that what one wishes for during this festival generally comes true.

And because of this many devotees from different parts of the state visit here after their prayers are fulfilled and offer to God whatever they had promised in case their wishes was fulfilled, as a sign of gratitude.

Chor, Romat, Korovolyo, ghodemodni are the different rituals and traditions one can see for this festival..

How the 7 different villages come together and how 7 brothers meet each other during this festival is another beautiful tradition followed here.
