Pandav Nirtya is one of the Oldest Dance of Uttarakhand. As it claries from the name itself that this song is related to Five Brothers Padav. As you aware, in Mahabarata it is said the Pandvas spent their entire exile time in Uttarakhand Hill. They constructed many temples there including famous Kedarnath Temple. There are evidence of Pandavas in many at our Dev Bhoomi.

The dance performed by Pandvas is very popular in Garwal 's many Distt. A fair also takes there in Garwal. Unfortunately, this dance could never come in national levels.

We would provide here some clipping and details about the Pandav Nirtya.

Hope u would also add the detials from your side also.

Pandav Nritya in Uttarakhand is one of the most famous dance forms of the Garhwal dance forms. Pandav Nritya chiefly belongs to the Chamoli district and the districts of the Pauli Garhwal. Legend has it that the origins of Pandav Nritya at Uttarakhand can be traced back to the period when Pandavas were the rulers of Uttarakhand.

The performance of Pandav Nriyta of Garhwal is intrinsically connected to the festivities of the Hindu populace of the state. Pandav Nritya seems to be almost synonymous with the 'Dussehra' and 'Diwali' of Uttarakhand, because during this time Pandav Nritya performance becomes mandatory.

Pandav Nitrya of Uttarakhand is particularly a specialty of the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, where people have related mythology with the dance form. The Pandav Nritya, as the common people says, is related to the story of Mahabharata. It can be said that Pandav Nritya is an episodic representation of the story of the Mahabharata.

Quite expectedly, the thematic content of the story deals with the various significant episodes taken from the great Indian epic of the 'Mahabharata'. In fact, in the performances we can find a depiction of the prosperity of the Pandavas and their banishment. The Pandav Nritya also deals with the Dice-game between the Kauravas and Pandavas, deception and betrayal done by the Kauravas, the misbehavior with Draupadi, restoration of the kingdom by the Pandavas, etc. Uttarakhand's Pandav Nritya is significant for more than one reason. It is a great mode of entertainment and also a great instruction to the common people on the epics that form such an important part of their lives. Pandav Nritya presents the Mahabharata presents the epic as a virtual picture book and are greatly loved and very well attended.
