India is a land of Cultural Diversity and celebration of Holi festival throughout the country is no exception from that. To commemorate the Celebration of Holi by Lord Krishna and Radha cited in Hindu mythology wise religious men from Barsana & Nandgaon gather in front of temple. Colored water made from "Palash" flower extract and colored powders are poured on the devotees in full swing and no one is exempted from that even the photographers.
