Divine Dances

Rahul Kumar 0

Charkula dance is a breathtaking dance performance from Braj region of Uttar Pradesh.

A veiled women dancer delicately balances a large multi-tiered circular wooden pyramid, lit with 108 oil lamps over her head while dancing to songs about the Hindu God, Krishna.

It is specially performed on the third day after Holi, an important festival in India. It is believed that on that day Lord Krishna's supreme beloved, Radha was born.
