Holi is an ancient Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring and celebrates the victory of good over evil. It is celebrated all over India, as well as in other countries around the world, with great enthusiasm and joy. The festival is celebrated by throwing colors on each other, playing with water balloons, and enjoying delicious food.

Holi has its roots in Hindu mythology and has been celebrated since ancient times. According to mythological stories, it was a celebration of Lord Krishna's victory over the demon king Hiranyakashipu. The Hindu mythology tells that every year on this special day of joyous celebration, Lord Krishna descended to earth as a baby and reunited with his mortal parents. It was then that he performed an ancient ritual where he " took" milk from the mother's breast. We invite you to come to the Festival and join with us in welcoming Lord Krishna into our homes, hearts, and lives.

Today, people celebrate Holi to commemorate this victory and also to signify the end of winter season and beginning of spring season. People exchange sweets and gifts with their loved ones to express their love for them on this day.While traditional rituals are still practiced in many parts of India, modern ways to celebrate Holi have also emerged.

Colors are an integral part of Holi celebrations. It is believed that the colors used during Holi represent the changing of seasons, fertility, and abundance. The vibrant colors bring joy and happiness to everyone who takes part in this festival. Moreover, each color has its own symbolic meaning associated with it. Red stands for love and passion, yellow represents joy and happiness, green is associated with renewal, blue stands for peace and tranquility while white symbolizes purity.
