Experience Holi - The Festival of Colours

Our group will get to experience Holi in Jaipur! Also known as the Festival of Colours, Holi is considered as one of the most widely celebrated holidays in India! This Hindu festival welcomes the spring season by kicking off the evening before the day of Holi with a bonfire to symbolize the triumph of good over bad. The next morning on the day of Holi, people celebrate all day with food and drink and the throwing coloured powder which leaves everyone coated from head to toe in bright colours. The colour is meant to signify ones sins, and with it being washed off at the end of the day you are reborn clean.
