The Brij (or Braj) festival in Rajasthan takes place every year prior to the festival of Holi. The 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 is celebrated with lots of enthusiasm and zest in the Brij region which is located in the Bharatpur district. The festival is also known as Brij Mahotsava and is celebrated for three days in Shukla Paksha (first fortnight between New Moon Day and Full Moon Day) of the Phalgun month as per the Hindu calendar.


The festival sees villagers splashing colors on each other and painting their houses in different and bright colors. 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.

The region comes alive with beautiful colors and vivid people as they play with colors. Dance is often a cultural part of the festival with music and stories. The festival has popularized folk dance and opera by many professionals and amateurs. Locals as well as tourists from all across the world come here to witness the saga. The Brij festival exhibits the traditional culture of Rajasthan.
