Yaoshang: Dancing at the Sri Govindaji Temple

From all across the Imphal valley buses, cars, minivans, and trucks carry men and women to the Sri Govindaji Temple on the first full day of Yaoshang (Holi as celebrated by the Meiteis).  Clad in their traditional attire carrying drums and banners they dance in the hall opposite the main shrine festively throwing there hands in the air as pink dyed water rains down on upon them, in jubilant celebration.
