The tradition dates back to more than 500 years, when the Krishna temple was established. Women from the family which established the temple, strip the men and beat them up with their own clothes, in the temple courtyard. Its a huge family with about 3000 members now, and they all come to the village from across the world for the festival.

This was to me the most fun-filed Holi. People just let go of all their inhibitions and play with colors. After the ceremony gets over, there is more Holi played in the courtyard of the temple and everyone is welcome to join in.
