Janadriyah Festival and why it’s so anticipated
The Janadriyah Festival is held in the Janadriyah village yearly to celebrate and keep in touch with Saudi’s traditions and rich culture. It is because of this that the festival boasts thousands of visitors during the time it runs.

Sushma Swaraj, minister of external affairs, will be attending the opening ceremony on behalf of India. India was chosen as this year’s guest of honor to show the strength and brotherly relationship between the two countries.
