Breakfast in Agra:
After breakfast in Agra, we will proceed for a day excursion to Vrindavan to witness the famous Holi celebration.
The village of Vrindavan is where the young Krishna is said to have grown up. Pilgrims flock here from all over India and, in the case of the Hare Krishna community, from all over the world. Dozens of temples, old and modern, dot the area. They come in all shapes and sizes and many have their own unique peculiarities.
Upon arrival in Vrindavan visit the ISCON Temple. Later in the afternoon proceed to witness the Holi celebration at Banke Bihari Temple.
The celebration at Banke-Bihari temple on this day is worth visiting. Here watch Hindu priests throw colored water and marigold garlands over the devotees, and feel the crowd surge forward to get a better glimpse of their beloved Lord Krishna. Packed Lunch and Water Bottle will be provided.
In the evening visit Prem Mandir while driving back to Agra and transfer to the hotel.
- We would pass the woods where according to legends, Lord Krishna frolicked with the Gopis and tenderly wooed Radha.
- We’d also learn more about this cow-herding community where he spent his childhood.
- In Vrindavan, we’ll continue the Holi celebration in full glory with a visit to the famous Banke-Bihari Temple.
