Overview

Holi symbolizes the victory of good over evil and there are several legends that explain the origin of Holi. The most popular is the "Legend of Holika".

The legend got its name from the sister of the evil ruler Hiranyakasipu. He considered himself a god and demanded worship from absolutely everyone. But his heir, son Prahlad became a devotee of God Vishnu.

Then Holika, endowed with the ability to pass through fire unharmed, persuaded Prahlad to climb the fire in the name of his god. Prahlad began chanting hymns to Vishnu and remained unharmed. Holika died. 

The main thing about Holi is the colors. The holiday lasts three days. On the first day, an effigy of the enemy of the gods, Holika, is burned, and the second and third days are days of riotous fun and then the colors begin.

Everyone pours colored water on each other and throws colored powders. Gradually, everything and everyone becomes painted in bright colors, with explosions of colored powder and splashes everywhere.

Route details

Day 1
Delhi

Meeting you at Delhi airport - traditional greeting with a garland of flowers.

  • City tour of Delhi

The metropolis of twenty million is divided into a new and an old city. The most important administrative buildings are concentrated in new Delhi. Most of the local nobility live here.

In old Delhi, life is in full swing according to the laws of the multimillion-dollar jungle and medieval exoticism. Narrow streets, low houses, and very close to modern high-rise buildings and wide avenues. Truly Delhi is a city of contrasts!
