About the festival

According to mythological tales, it is believed that Lord Krishna expressed his affection for Radha. Therefore, the people celebrate Dol Jatra to signify this reunion of Krishna and Radha by parading with their decorated idols in a swinging palanquin. The people use a coloured power or Abir as it is called in Bengal, Assam and Bihar, to smear it on the idol of Krishna and Radha while the devotees chant.
