Holi 2023: Holi of Masana is played here, instead of colors ashes of pyres are applied


The festival of Holi is celebrated with great pomp across the country. In such a situation, the festival of Holi has started today. Holi festival has special importance in the Hindu religion. Holi festival is celebrated every year on the full moon day of Shukla Paksha of Phalgun month. But today we are talking about the special Holi played in the city of Baba Vishwanath.

By the way, you must have been to Varanasi many times and you must have seen people giving last farewell to their relatives at Manikarnika Ghat. But on the day of Holi, this ghat has a different view. Here the devotees of Lord Shiva play Holi with the ashes of the pyre while dancing in the middle of the pyre.


There is a religious belief that if someone plays Holi with the ashes of the pyre, then the fear of death goes away. Along with this, the blessings of Baba Vishwanath remain forever on the devotees by playing Holi of Masana. It is said that this removes tantric obstacles.
