Rang Bhari Ekadashi & Holi at Kashi Vishwanath Mandir, Banaras

 

Rangbhari Ekadashi at Kashi Vishwanath Mandir,

Ready to throw Abeer on the Shiva-Parvati Gauna Procession just as they enter the temple.

 

 

Happy Holi …..

 

Shots of Rangbhari Ekadashi – the Gauna of Parvati that marks the start of Holi playing.

After the wedding of Shiva & Parvati on Mahashivratri, a huge procession of Damru players accompanies Parvati to her new home in the Vishwanath Temple at her Gauna on Rangbhari Ekadashi.

This festival with the drums reverberating from the gullies to the skies has to be experienced … words are not enough to describe it.

At Kashi Vishwanath Mandir, Benaras.

And then a few days later, Holi at home
