The Hindu festival “Bada Mangal” is dedicated to Lord Sankat Mochan “Hanuman” and is observed on Tuesdays in the month of Jyeshtha (May - June) according to the Hindu traditional calendar. It’s celebrated in North India. ‘Bada Mangal’ is notably observed in Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh and nearby regions. The origin of this Hindu fair is tracked down to the Naya Hanuman Mandir at Aliganj in Lucknow city. 
 
 
 
As the name ‘Bada Mangal’ is celebrated on the first Tuesday in the month of Jyeshtha or Jeth. A big fair is arranged in the region during a time period.  It is believed that this fair and festival is more than 400 years old.

Behind the origin of “Bada Mangal” fair, there are various theoretical stories. One legend propounds that the child of the Nabab Mohammad Ali Shah fell ill and doctors were unable to cure the child. The wife of the Nawab (Begum Rabia) took the child to various places in the hope to get a solution to the child’s health. One day during her searches she met the priest of the Naya Hanuman Mandir at Aliganj in Lucknow city. The priest asked her to leave the child in front of the Hanuman idol in the temple and come back after some time. By the blessings of Lord Hanuman, the child was recovered. The mother could not believe in her own eyes. The wife of the Nawab offered to make the temple. The priest suggested that instead of making a temple, it would be better to arrange a fair here as it would lead to the economic prosperity of the region.
