Brij Festival takes place a few days before Holi, (the
festival of colours) in the month of March. Held in honour of
Lord Krishna, this festival is marked by verve and zest.
Villagers, in gay, multihued attire, can be seen singing and
performing the Raslila dance (dance depicting the
immortal love-story of Radha and Krishna).
All of Bharatpur echoes the sound of folk melodies on
this festival held on the eve of Holi. Men and women, young and
old, rich and poor-all are touched by the spirit of this
festival. Boisterous revellers spare no one during this festival
and delight in splashing colour on everyone around.
Bharatpur is situated on the Delhi - Mumbai main railway line
and also on National Highway no. 11 (Bikaner - Agra).
Agra being the nearest Airport (56 kms.)
