  • Braj Celebrates Month of Sawan with Grand Teej and Swing Festivals, Adorning Temples with Decorative Clouds
  • Devotees Flock to Vaishnava Temples in Braj to Witness the Spectacle

2023.07.14 (Vrindavan Today News): The month of Sawan (July-August) holds a special significance in the heartland of Braj, as it ushers in grand celebrations of Teej and swing festivals, turning the region into a haven of festivities. However, what sets Braj apart during this time is the enchanting tradition of adorning temples with decorative rain-bearing clouds. These clouds, meticulously crafted, add a touch of ethereal beauty to the temple premises, captivating the senses of all who witness them.

The temples of Mathura, particularly the Dwarkadhish Temple, are adorned with these artificial clouds daily. The vibrant display transforms the temple environment, immersing it in a kaleidoscope of colors. Each day, the clouds dictate the color scheme for the temple decorations. For instance, when green clouds grace the sky, the temple is embellished with green-colored clothes adorning every corner. Even Thakurji adorns a green-colored attire, crown, and ornaments. This symbolic gesture aims to recreate the myriad colors of natural clouds within the sacred space.
