Gajan festival or Gajan is a folk festival. Observed at the end of the Bengali calendar, this festival is celebrated mainly in the rural parts of Bengal (West Bengal). It is associated with such deities as Shiva, Neel, and Dharmathakur. The word Gajan in Bengali comes from the word Garjan or roar that sannyasis (hermits) emit during the festivities.
