As you enter this temple in Vrindavan, you can hear the slow, rhythmic beating of drums and the hypnotic chanting of priests. Walk through it's shadowy entrance hallway, and you find yourself in a room full of people, flooded with light rays and constantly changing colour as paint powder is thrown into the air. People enter with dry clothes, but leave completely soaked with water from head to toe and covered in the coloured powder. Definitely one of the more unique Holi experiences to be had during the week of celebrations! Swipe to see the rest of the shots! ➡️
When the Raas Lila began, Shri Krishna played his flute and all the gopis came running. He danced with every gopi, giving equal attention to each one. But the glory of the Raas Lila could not reach its supreme state unless Shri Krishna enjoyed fully with Shri Radha. So Radha left the Raas, and Krishna followed her.
Now alone, Shri Radha and Krishna played with each other freely. Shri Radha’s clothes and jewellery were disturbed during their play. Shringar Vat is the place where Shri Krishna arranged his Beloved’s clothes, tenderly placing her jewellery back in the right places, gently combing her curly locks and decorating her with flowers.
