History of Huranga holi in 2024

Dauji's Huranga is conducted in the mathura family village named Baldev after Lord Baldev, also called Dau ji Maharaj, the elder brother of Shri Krishna. In the vernacular, "Dau ji" refers to an older brother. One of Lord Vishnu's two mounts, Sheshnag, assumed the shape of Lord Baldev. It is believed that on this holi, Lord Baldev assumes the role of Lord krishna in Maharas or Mahalila. Huranga is a more combative variation of holi that is supposedly only done by Lord Baldev Ji. Huranga is only permitted entry into the temple by Goswami kalyan Deo ji's descendants. Since receiving the rights, the descendants of kalyan Deo ji have made it a tradition to perform Huranga once a year.

The god's idol was placed there during Akbar's reign by Gokul Nath ji, the acharya of the Ballabha Kul sect. Each year, following Dhulandi or Badi holi, hundreds of pilgrims travel by bus to attend the holi festivities and play. holi is the most significant holiday for Balrama ji, the elder brother of Lord Krishna. According to the Bhagavata Purana, Balrama once returned to Braj by himself and didn't bring krishna with him, performing ras-lila for the gopis. To honor this history and remember the goddess Balrama, the temple celebrates Dauji ka Huranga every year, two days following Chaitra Masa's Purnima.
