Dolyatra

Dolyatra, also referred to as Dol Jatra or Dol Purnima, is a Hindu festival observed in West Bengal, India. This vibrant celebration of colors commemorates the love shared between Radha and Lord Krishna and is often called the "Swing Festival."

Taking place in March, the specific date fluctuates with the moon's position. In the midst of the festivities, idols portraying Radha and Krishna are adorned and positioned on chariots or palanquins. These idols sway to and fro, accompanied by the melodic tunes sung by women, while men joyfully spray colored powder, adding to the festive atmosphere.
