Brij Mahotsav Bharatpur
The Brij Festival Bharatpur 2-4 February
The Brij Festival takes place a few days before Holi, (the festival
of colours) in the month of March. Held in honour of Lord Krishna,
this festival is marked by verve and zest. Villagers, in gay, multihued
attire, can be seen singing and performing the Raslila dance (dance
depicting the immortal love-story of Radha and Krishna).
All of Bharatpur echoes the sound of folk melodies on this festival
held on the eve of Holi. Men and women, young and old, rich and
poor-all are touched by the spirit of this festival. Boisterous
revellers spare no one during this festival and delight in splashing
colour on everyone around.
