JHULAN YATRA FESTIVAL ( 22ND August TO 26TH August 2018)

The Jhulan Festival is celebrated in the month of Shravana (August), from the eleventh day of the bright fortnight (Ekadashi) to the full-moon day (Purnima). This festival is celebrated to commemorate the childhood pastimes of Sri Krishna with His friends, the young cowherd boys and girls, swinging underneath the trees.

Every day the Deities of Sri Sri Radha Madhava are adorned with various jewelries and gently swayed on a silver swing decorated profusely with flowers. The swing will be decorated beautifully with flowers and festoons. The Deities of Sri Sri Radha Madhava  are adorned in brilliance and placed in a Jhulan (swing) decorated with a variety of beautiful flowers. A special arati is offered to the Deities accompanied by sweet kirtans sung by devotees. After the arati, devotees get an opportunity to sway the swing and offer direct personal service to Their Lordships.
