Sadar Festival

Sadar festival (buffalo festival) is celebrated annually by the Yadav community of Hyderabad, Telangana, India as a part of Diwali. It is also known as Dunnapothula panduga and it occurs on the second day after Diwali.

The buffaloes are decorated with garlands of flowers, painted horns, and paraded through the streets, often accompanied by the crowd dancing to the sounds of teen maar music. The animals are sometimes encouraged to rear up on their hind legs and perform some acrobats. Prizes are awarded for the best display.

The parade happens mostly in Khairatabad, Narayanaguda, Chintal Basti, Ghasmandi, Old Bhoiguda, Madhapur, Kacheguda and some other places.
