Porbandar receives the third-highest average rainfall annually, among all 11 districts of Saurashtra region, falling behind Gir Somnath (37 inch) and Junagadh (35 inch) - the districts which share their border with Porbandar. But this year, the coastal district is yet to get its quota of rain.
The fair is organised by Madhavpur village panchayat and Madhavraiji temple committee every year. However, this year, the state and Central governments jointly pitched in and overtook the entire task of organising and managing the fair.
The sanctuary is to be set up over an area of 900 hectares. But the land is yet to be allotted. While 100 hectares would be used for building 1,000 cow sheds, 800 hectares would be used for fodder production.
