Jhulan Yatra

"ঝুলন পূর্ণিমা" is one of the traditional festivals of Bengal. Radha-Krishna’s jhoolan yatra is famous among Vaishnavs, however, is celebrated by other communities as well. This festival carries the significance of eternal divine love between Radha and Krishna.

We used to show our creativity in making a theme around the Jhula. It varied from a village vine to an urban union of Radha and Krishna.

This festival is observed for seven days till the Shravan Purnima. Decoration with small dolls, toys, artefacts etc. illuminated with miniature lights makes the celebration a unique one.
