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".
I met few travelers from the TripAdvisor community in Mathura, and we all went to the famous Banke Bihari temple in Vrindavan and joined the never ending line of people in the streets which leads to the temple. Banke Bihari temple is really small and it is impossible for it to accommodate the number of visitors. As a result, there is no space inside the temple and people are literally standing without any gap. Priests were throwing gulaal and colored water from pipes on the devotees.
Banke Bihari temple is one of the oldest and most sacred temple in Vrindavan where you can get famous sweet known as Pera. It is said that journey of Vrindavan is incomplete if we don't visit Banke Bihari temple.
