Experience the way Holi was back in the day of Lord Krishna. Join in the exhilaration of colors and the revelry that sweeps through Braj much before rest of India starts playing Holi.

Situated on the west bank of the Yamuna River, approximately 145 kilometres south-east of Delhi; Mathura is one of the most important pilgrimage center for Hindus with a history dating back to the Vedic age. Mentioned in the oldest Indian epic, The Ramayana, the city has seen several illustrious rulers including the Ikshwaku prince Shatrughana, Mauryas and even witnessed Indo-Grecian eras if some historical accounts are to be believed. Mathura’s art and culture reached its zenith under the Kushan dynasty which had Mathura as one of their capitals, the other being Purushapura (Peshawar).

The eco-cultural region is known as Braj and Holi in Braj carries on for more than 10 days. The Holi celebrations are centred around the opposition, and change in power equations between the male as embodied in Krishna and the female, as embodied in Radha. Pushti-Margi temples, spread throughout North and Western States of India, celebrate the festival. The Deity, and the laity, are liberally sprinkled with perfumes, saffron water, kesudo, and covered in sandalwood as well as the white and pink powder, abirand gulal. Joyous celebration is accompanied by classical music, poetry and folk songs appropriate for the occasion.

In the magical playground of Krishna – the land of Braj, Holi is celebrated with a gusto that is unmatched anywhere else in India. Our special tour is designed to give you a flavour of some of the varied events of Holi in this dev-bhumi (land of the gods), focusing on the celebrations in Mathura, Barsana and Vrindavan.
