Description
Join us for what strives to be Delhi’s most traditional & natural Holi, now in its sixth year. Our Holi celebrations try to stick as close as possible to the beautiful ethos of Basant Utsav, one of India’s oldest festivals dating back to ancient India. Today, Holi is becoming more popular every year on the cultural scene of Delhi, but the essence of the festival is totally lost in many of these celebrations. We try to stay as close as possible to the real spirit of the festival – a celebration of pure natural spring colours, along with special Holi food, and music! And our beloved genda phool – the eternal and universal marigold flower!
