Celebrating the birthday of legendary king Maharaja Agrasen of Agroha, Agrasen Jayanti is observed on the fourth day of the seventh month of the Hindu calendar.
It is a regional holiday in the states of Haryana, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh, and his followers commemorate this day with extravagant preparations and events.
Maharaja Agrasen is said to have been the originator of the Agrahari and Agrawal communities. The word 'Agrawal' is derived from two words, 'Agra' meaning 'Agrasen' and 'wal' meaning son.
Indians generally believe him to be the forefather of this community and therefore the festival is celebrated with utmost love and devotion for him.
Maharaja Agrasen preached unity and harmony in the society which is primarily why his followers give out free food and medicines as part of the celebrations. In an effort to honor him, the Government of India also launched a postage stamp in 1976 on his 5100th birth anniversary.
