Delhi Photography Presents Dauji ka Kuranga Date : 3rd March 2018
Day Trip to Dauji ka HUranga
Unique opportunity to Click the wet Holi and Colors
The festival of Holi is celebrated in the small town of Baldeo located at a distance of about 20 km from Mathura by the name of Dauji Ka Huranga.
The most striking characteristic of Dauji ka Huranga is that here Lord Balaram or Baldeo replaces Lord Krishna as the presiding deity of the festival. There is a temple dedicated to him in the heart of the town and that is the prime spot of the celebrations.
A wild craze marks the festivities. Men and women assemble within the premises of the temple by afternoon. Sangeet Samaj, a kind of devotional music fills the atmosphere. Then they drench each other with hues of myriad color. The ambience is very colorful and joyous. From the roofs of the temple women pour buckets of colored water on the men.
The men tear off their clothes. Whips are made of these clothes and are used to beat the men up. It is all done in the right spirit. However the men are not permitted to touch the women or remove the veil from their faces.
You have no respite even if you are an on looker. You will be dragged into the merrymaking and soaked in colors. But there is no doubt that it is thoroughly enjoyable. Fun, frolic and loads of delight mark the Dauji ka Huranga.
