With an immensely strong bonding with Lord Krishna, people of Mathura and Vrindavan celebrate Holi for over a week.people relive the legends of Holi associated with Radha and Krishna and play pranks the young Krishna played with the cowgirls called Gopis. The underlying feeling of this fun-frolic was love and devotion. Even today, romance can be experienced in the very atmosphere in the Krishna-nagari. One just needs to breathe in this air and drench oneself in the feeling of love and romance. So much is the passion of the people here, that they throng these temples every day and get drenched in colored water…all in the name of the Lord they love so much.Yes! You’ll play Holi this time with our Greeter at Vrindavan – the world’s favorite destination for the festival of colors! Excited? to celebrate holi in the most wild, yet colorful and sane revelry. With sticks, shields, colors and canons of water. About Barsana Holi : The Holi celebrations in Braj begin at Barsana, Radha’s (Krishna’s consort) village, six days before Holi. The people of Nandgaon and Barsana play Holi together. The men wear huge turbans decorated with leaves to protect themselves from the color and beatings of the women of Barsana. Lathmar Holi (literally Stick Beatings Holi) is played at sunset, when women dressed in beautiful sarees hit the men with sticks. They unleash a shower of sticks on the naughty boys of Nandgaon to teach them a lesson for all the broken pots and for teasing the girls of Barsana.
