Barsana Latmar Holi

With the festival of Holi around the corner, the towns of Barsana and Nandgaon have already smeared themselves in the colours of Lathmar Holi. What literally translates to a festival of sticks and colours--Lathmar Holi lives up to every bit of its name. It will not be wrong to say that Lathmar Holi festivities in the towns of Barsana and Nandgaon, located near Mathura in Uttar Pradesh, are the highlights for the towns that are said to be associated with a Hindu legend related to Lord Krishna and Radha.
