Banke Bihari Temple Vrindavan, Mathura (UP)

The phool bangla festival begins on Kamada (Phuldol) Ekadashi in the Banke Bihari Temple, and will continue up to Hariyali Amavasya. For 108 days, Thakurji will give his darshan amidst the most lavishly fragrant flowers. Both Indian and foreign flowers are used, including carnations, marigolds, lillies, lotuses, orchids, rajnigandha (tuberose), roses and various kinds of jasmine. The phool bangla tradition also nourishes Vrindavan’s economy, providing a good deal of business to the gardners who provide the flowers and the artisans who construct the banglas.
