In the five districts of the Agra division that make up Braj, it is a no-holds-barred celebration inspired by the legend of Krishna-Radha and replete with examples of Mughal emperors like Akbar and Jahangir who enthusiastically participated in the festival.

"Normally, it is a 50-day affair starting with Basant Panchami," said Acharya Jaimini of Vrindavan.

The festivities begin with Holi celebrations at the Dwarkadheesh temple in Mathura. Braj, the birthplace of Lord Krishna, is located within a 100-km radius of the Hindu pilgrim town.

"We mostly use natural colours made by mixing tesu flowers with lukewarm water, so that the little Krishna doesn't catch cold," a temple official said.

Jagannath Poddar, director of the NGO Friends of Vrindavan, said: "This festival is more socio-cultural than religious as all communities join the festivities, sing, dance and throw colours."
