It is certainly the ideal place to be in during this season! With colors and naughtiness in the air, lingering smell of sweets and happy colorful faces greeting each other, everyone wishes to be a part of this amazing extravaganza! It is a month long fiesta beginning in February and ending with the grand Mathura Holi celebrations in March. It covers the whole Brij Bhoomi, from Gokul, Vrindavan, Barsana, Nandgaon to Mathura. Month long events at these places leave you mesmerized! And why not! Every Year International TV teams, Celebrated Dignitaries, Photographers & Tourists from all continents throng to Mathura to see this spectacle!
Barsana Lathmaar Holi followed by the repulsive action at Nandgaon is so exciting! ‘Falen Ki Holi’ takes place in the Falen village 40 km from Mathura, where a priest walks bare footed and bare bodied through a mound of fire! It is said the family of the priest is blessed by a saint to stay unaffected by fire, just like ‘Prahlad’. Be sure, this mind boggling event will surpass all the chills and thrills you must have seen! Lastly, ‘Dauji Huranga’, which is played in the village of Lord Krishna’s elder brother Baldeo who was also called ‘Dauji’. It is going to drench your senses in a splash of colors!
