Holi - Festival of Colours
Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh
If there’s one place that gets into the spirit of Holi even before it arrives it’s the city of Lord Krishna – Vrindavan. Festivities start here a week in advance and the spirit of fun drenches the air. Legend says that King Hiranyakashyap, wanting to burn his son alive asked his sister Holika for assistance. Prince Prahlad sat in his aunt’s lap surrounded by flames, which surprisingly killed her despite a boon and he escaped unscathed. It is believed that his prayers to Krishna saved him.
