What is a Bhela Ghar?

By Shivank Goel|Updated : September 6th, 2022

Bhela Ghar is a temporary place to spend the night. A communal feast hall known as bhela ghar is made of thatch, bamboo, straws, dried leaves, and other organic materials. It is something that the entire community enjoys on uruka or the night before Bihu. It has a tremendous cultural impact.

Bhela Ghar

A Bhela Ghar can accommodate a couple of people who choose to spend the Uruka night inside of its modest yet sturdy rustic form. Women test their culinary prowess by concentrating on the community feast for Uruka night and the major gourmet supper on Bihu, while males spend time making Bhela Ghars.

The majority of Bhela Ghars are constructed in open areas; a dry paddy field offers a secure alternative because it is burned completely on Bihu.
