India is home to around 697 tribal groups and communities each of which follows their own culture and tradition. Festivals are an important part of the life of these tribal groups. There are a number of tribal festivals which are celebrated by various tribes in India. During these festivals, the tribal groups wear their own traditional costumes and jewellery and follow their long-established dance forms. Whether it is the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Kerala, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Manipur or Odisha, tribal festivals are celebrated in almost every corner of Indian states. These tribal festivals are celebrated with a view to appeasing the presiding deities of the tribes.

Sarhul is celebrated for several days during which the main traditional dance that is the `Sarhul Dance` is performed. During the festival, Sal flowers are brought to the Sarna, sacred grove and the priest propitiates all the gods of the tribes. A `Sarna` is a cluster of trees where the Adivasis would worship in various occasions. Such a grove among many others must house at least five Saal (Shorea Robusta) trees also known as `Sorjum` held very sacred by the tribes. It is a worship of the village deity who is considered to be the protector of the tribes. People sing and dance a lot when the new flowers appear. The deities are worshiped with Saal flowers.
