Without a doubt, Mathura would be at the top of the list, as the festival of colours has its origins there. Holi celebrations in Mathura are famous for obvious reasons, as temples in the hometown of Lord Krishna host wonderful events to celebrate this festival. These colourful events are counted among the country's largest Holi celebrations, making Mathura a must-see destination during the festival of colours.

The festival of colours attracts a large number of devotees to Lord Krishna's playland. The Holi celebrations in Vrindavan are centred on the Banke Bihari Temple. Vrindavan becomes a must-visit place during Holi, as the festival's bliss lasts for a week, begins with "Phoolon ki Holi", moving on to Widows Holi, and comes to an end with a flood of colours a day before Holi.

You must go to Udaipur this year to see the festival of colours in royal mode. The festival is also attended by some royal families because it is appraised as a royal event. Holi begins with Holika Dahan when the local Maharaja lights a ceremonial bonfire in the royal palace's courtyard, known as the Mewar Holika Dahan. The event concludes with spectacular fireworks.
