Sirpur attracts visitors from all over the world. It's a place you simply don't want to miss.

Perched on the banks of Mahanadi, Sirpur is a small town located 85 km away from the state capital, Raipur. Sirpur is an extraordinarily beautiful travel experience which takes you back in time with its astonishing monuments in the form of temples and Buddhist monasteries (Viharas), all set into a picturesque canvas of exquisite nature and meditative peace.

In the midst of this exoticism and mysticism unfolds the much acclaimed Sirpur National Dance and Music Festival - held year after year in the month of January, under the auspices of the Chhattisgarh Tourism Board. This festival is the most coveted and successful event of its kind in India, entirely organised by Chhattisgarh Tourism; it is also an international attraction.
