Mathura Vrindavan is one of the holiest lands on the face of India. According to mythological records, it is said that Mathura is actually the birth place of Lord Krishna, whereas Vrindavan is the place where he spent the early days of his childhood and left behind tales of mysticism and divinity. This explains the enigma of Mathura Vrindavan, where one can still feel the divine presence of the Lord. It is for this reason that Holi is celebrated with great zeal here.
Thousands of people visit the place, in search of peace, every year.
The Holi celebrations present another reason for the admirers of the
Lord to assemble at Mathura Vrindavan. They come to be a part of the
colorful amalgamation of festivity and divinity. The main aim behind the
festival of Holi is to rejoice in the love and devotion for the Supreme
Being. The color and water washes away all the man made distinctions
based on caste, creed, etc.
The celebrations of the festival go on for about a week in Mathura
Vrindavan. One of the unique features of the festival here is that
different temples of Lord Krishna celebrate Holi on different days. It
is interesting as well as amazing, to watch devotees at the Banke-Bihari
Temple of Vrindavan. The environment is filled with a unique thrill,
with people passionately chanting the name of Lord Krishna and Radha.
