Photos from Holi Festival in Mathura/Vrindavan

View gallery

The tradition of playing colours on Holi draws its roots from a legend of Radha and Krishna. It is said that young Krishna was jealous of Radha’s fair complexion since he himself was very dark. He narrated his woe to mother Yashoda, who teasingly asked him to colour Radha’s face in which ever colour he wanted. In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied colour on Radha’s face. The tradition of applying colour on one’s beloved is being religiously followed till date.¬†Anthony Kurtz, photographer from Berlin, Germany,¬†went to photograph this tradition and created a set with amazing photos.
