Day 1

From last two years I had been visiting Mathura during Holi Celebrations. But this year I had to attend Annual Management Fest of my college. On 25th of February I attended the fest finale and decided to board the evening train to Mathura. Without any reservation I boarded the train(in general compartment). Reached Mathura late night. From there I took shared auto to Vrindavan because next day they were going to celebrate Widow Holi in Vrindavan.

Day 2

This day is one of the best days of life. I woke up early and started covering my camera to protect it from Colors and water. Started for the temple at 9. Preparations were at full swing inside the temple and guess what , I saw MasterChef Vikas Khanna inside the premises. Holi started by around 11AM. We all started pouring powdered Colors and flower petals over all the widows present over there. Master Chef also played holi with us . I met with few of my photographer friends there and joined them and clicked few beautiful photographs. Holi celebration got ended by 4. I headed towards my hotel after having a glass of lassi. My plan was to leave for Varanasi the next morning.

Day 3

I woke up early in the morning and packed my bag to leave for the railway station. As I reached the station I saw few of my friends there at the railway station. They were going to Agra so I joined them and we went to Agra together. We reached Agra by 12 and visited Mehtab Bagh. You will get awesome view of Taj from there . We took few photographs there and relaxed till 5 in the evening and then left for Varanasi.
