Radha-Madhava flower-abhishek

It has become a tradition over the past three years to bathe Radha-Madhava in lots of flowers at the beginning of Magh month (Krishna pusya abhishek) - an exciting and colourful festival of flowers and colours in the middle of winter...
Devotees are enjoying participating in this festival.
After Gaura Aroti utsav Radha-Madhava are brought out on the platform and bathed in flower petals, at the same time in the main altar big Radha-Madhava and Sakhis are showered with a flower rain.
All deities are wearing flower dresses made by the hands of community devotees.
