Sanjhi Mahotsav/Festival in Braj (September 25 - October 9, 2018)

Every autumn for two weeks, the Sanjhi Utsav is held throughout Braj. Sanjhi is a unique art form in which coloured powders, gems, flower petals or cow dung are used to draw detailed scenes of Radha and Krishna’s lilas. Sanjhi can be made on the ground, on walls, or even on the surface of water. But at the Shri Radharaman Temple, a special structure of raised earth is made, which becomes the canvas for sanjhi.
The mood is that Radharani is busy with her family during pitr paksh, and thus she is not able to meet Krishna freely. In separation, she prays to Sanjhi Devi and lovingly draws sanjhi of her various lilas with her Beloved. The next morning, Radharani removes the previous night’s sanjhi and creates a new one. On the last day of the festival, there is a celebration.
