Rani Sati Fair is celebrated twice a year, on Magh- Krishna Navami and Bhadrapada Amavasya (August). It is held at Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan. The fair takes its name from Rani Sati, the first of the series of thirteen Satis of the Jalan family, who immolated herself on Magh Krishna Navami day. The last Sati was performed on Bhadrapada Amavasya.

Rani Sati Mela in Jhunjhunu (northern Shekhawati) attracts thousands of people and tourists from all over the world. The fair is held at the Rani Sati Mandir in Jhunjhunu.

Throughout the fair, devotes indulge in prayers to commemorate the memory of a merchant s widow who committed Sati, who sacrificed her life on her husband s pyre, in 1595.

The temple enjoys the distinction of being one of the ancient pilgrimages in the country. The temple is a historic and unprecedented work of genius that warrants a special visit.

Every Year, on the occasion of Bhado Amavasya or the no-moon day a sacred Pujanutsav is held in Jhunjhunu at the Rani Sati temple. Millions of devotees gather at the temple complex every year on this auspicious day and stand in queue to get a glimpse of the majestic Shri Rani Satiji.
