Hindola is popular festival celebrated in Hinduism. In this festival, idol of Lord Krishna is placed on the swing and is rocked by his devotees.


The festival finds its origin in the streets of Vrindavan over 5000 years ago where the Gopis rocked Krishna on a decorated swing. Ever since, to experience the divine joy of rocking Krishna in a small swing, the hindola festival became the focus of devotion. Hindola originates from the Pushtimarg sect. In Pushtimarg, Hindola is made of wood, gold, silver. They are decorated with flowers, fruits, dry fruits, vegetables, pavitra garlands, rakhis, glass, jari, pearls etc. Hindola remains one of the most auspicious festivals for Pushtimarg Vaishnavs.

Every day in the month of Shraavana, the Hindola is decorated with different material (mirrors, flowers, colors etc).

It occurs in the months of (Ashadh/Shravan) in the Vikram Samvat calendar. Mainly from Ashadh Vad 2nd to Shravan Vad- 2 every year.
