The Brij festival in Rajasthan takes place every year prior to the festival of Holi. Starting from February02 – 04, 2013, Brij festival is dedicated to lord Krishna who is believed to have spent a considerable time of his childhood at a place called Brij. The festival is yet another occasion for the villagers to be proud of the rich Indian culture and mythology.

The festival sees villagers splashing colours on each other and painting their houses in different and bright colours. The major highlight of the festival is the dance called Raslila which it is said was performed by Krishna and Radha in moments of deep intimacy and affection. The sight of villagers performing this dance in traditional attires is extremely pleasing. The sound of folk melodies and songs is a treat to the ears.
