Raas Garba is a traditional dance form originating from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is a celebration of the Hindu festival Navratri and symbolizes the victory of good over evil. The dance involves circle formations, with participants moving in a circular motion, often holding hands, to the beat of traditional music played on the dhol drum. Raas Garba has deep cultural significance in Gujarat and continues to be a beloved and vibrant part of the state's cultural heritage.
