उत्सवसंकेत  हिन्दी देवनागरी में पढ़ें।

utsavasnket vartaman himachal pradesh aur pnjab ki pahadiyon men base hue sapt ganarajyon ka samoohik nam jinaka ullekh mahabharat men hai. inhen arjun ne jita tha-

'pauravn yudhi nirjity dasyoonh parvatavasin:,
gananutsav snketanajayath sapt pandav:.'[1]

kuchh vidvanon ka mat hai ki prachin sahity men varnit kinnar desh shayad isi pradesh men sthit tha. in ganarajyon ke namakaran ka karan snbhavat: yah tha ki inake nivasiyon men samany vivahotsav ki riti prachalit nahin thi, varanh bhavi var vadhoo snket ya poorv-nishchit ekant sthan par milakar gndharv riti men vivah karate the.[2]

vartaman lahool ke ilake men, jo kinnar desh men shamil tha is prakar ke ritirivaj aj bhi prachalit hain, visheshat: yahan ki kanaudi namak jati men. kanaudi shayad kinnar ka hi apabhrnsh hai. kalidas ne bhi utsavasnketon ka varnan raghu ki digvijay-yatra ke prasng men desh ke isi bhag men kiya hai aur inhen kinnaron se sambaddh bataya hai-

'sharairutsabasnketans kritva viratotsavanh,
jayodaharann bahvorgapayamas kinnaranh.'[3]

arthath raghu ne utsavasnketon ko banon se parajit karake unaki sari prasannata har li aur vahan ke kinnaron ko apani bhujaon ke bal ke git gane par vivash kar diya. raghuvnsh 4, 77 men kalidas ne utsavasnketon ko parvatiy gan kaha hai-

'tatr janyn raghorghorn parvatiyaganairabhoot'.
