The most important element in the folk dance is the society itself. Folk dances show the human emotions like happiness, love, hate, compassion etc. The important events of life are portrayed through the folk dances collectively. The folk dances of any community or country reflects the lifestyle and glimpse of rich cultural heritage much more effectively than classical dancing. The reason is that the basic element of culture of any community or country is embedded in its rural life.
Folk dances have been performed since ancient times. They are the reflection of traditional values, enjoyment and spiritual faith of the people. Unlike classical dance one does not have to pay attention to counting of beats. In folk dances single person does not perform but groups of dancers perform and present the art and culture of their particular areas. The popular folk dances performed in different regions of Rajasthan will also be seen in this Chittorgarh Fort festival.
On 21st June 2013, World heritage committee of UNESCO included the Chittorgarh as World Heritage place in the conference of World Heritage Committee at Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
