It is the hub of holi festivals in Vrindavan which starts a week before the holi. We saw one narrow street going towards Banke-Bihari Temple from the backside of the temple and within 5 minutes, my white shirt had been coloured with different dry colours. The atmosphere at the temple has magnificent energetic and was high, the doors of the temple are opened to all the visitors to come and play holi. The priest throws the colors, water with pichkari and crowd chanting and praising lord Krishna "Hathi Ghoda palki, Jai Kannayya Lal ki".
