The most aggressive form of Holi. The aggression is of course of women on men 
😉 This is celebrated at the Dauji temple near Mathura.The tradition goes back almost 500 years – started by the family that established the Dauji temple. Only the traditional family takes part in this event. The devotees gather in the central courtyard of the temple, and soon after that, it turns into a battleground literally. Men pour buckets full of coloured water on the women, while the women get back at the men in a rather aggressive manner by thrashing them and ripping off their clothes. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Holi is one of the biggest Indian festivals and is also one of the most fun ones. Of course, there are prayers to the Gods, but the festivities then continue on the streets as colorful street festival. Though there is one main Holi day, the festivities actually start in mid-January at the time of Makar Sankranti and continue beyond the Holi day itself. If you are coming all the way to India to celebrate and capture Holi, it's highly recommended that you come early as well as stay back a little longer to capture some big events before and after the main Holi day.

The holi celebrations continue for a week in Mathura and Vrindavan. Some of the biggest events which make up this festival are :
