Holi-in-Dwarka-Gujarat

In Gujarat, Holi is two day festival. On the evening of the first day people lit the bonfire.

People offer raw coconut, corn to the fire.

The second day is the festival of colour or "Dhuleti", celebrated by sprinkling coloured water and applying colours to each other.

Dwarka, a coastal city of Gujarat, celebrates Holi at the Dwarkadheesh temple and city wide comedy and music festivities.

The Holi celebration has its celebrative origins in Gujarat, particularly with dance, food, music, and coloured powder to offer a spring parallel of Navratri, Gujarat's Hindu festival celebrated in the fall. Falling in the Hindu month of Phalguna, Holi marks the agricultural season of the Rabi crop.
