Barsana women waiting to swing the men


This carnival commences at Radha Rani temple which is located at the village summit. The procession moves forward into the town's alleys. The men, organized in packs approach the ladies which stand firm, face covered, at the threshold of their houses. The men start singing lewd songs while splashing colors everywhere, until the ladies jump forward and start hitting them with sticks. The following day, women of Barsana arrive at Nandgaon and the festival picks up momentum. In the village of Vrindavan the focus of festivities is held in Banke Bihari temple. There people celebrate Phoolon Wali Holi, meaning the Holi of flowers. This event involves flower throwing in place of color spraying and is unique for this town.
