Thailand will have the Holi Festival for the first time

For the first time this year, Thailand will observe the celebrated Hindu holiday of Holi. The celebration, also known as the festival of colors, is celebrated by Hindus all around the world and heralds the approach of spring. It is also mythologically significant because it recalls the heavenly love of the Hindu deities Radha and Krishna, as well as the triumph of virtue over evil.

Smearing colored powder produced from the leaves or blooms of various plants, such as neem, turmeric, saffron, and bael, on each other’s faces or sprinkling colored water is a traditional celebration. In recent times, though, colored flour combined with food coloring is utilized.

The Holi festival will be held in Bangkok on March 12 from 1-10 pm at Bangkok World, which is located near the Siam Incredible Park entrance. The event will feature complete Bollywood-style presentations by Thailand’s most prominent Bollywood singers, actors, and DJs.

From March 8 to 12, the celebration will also involve a ceremony of prayers by scholars to the Hindu goddess of riches, Lakshmi, and the remover of obstacles, Ganesha. Furthermore, the March 11-12 event will feature savory and sweet foods from prominent Indian restaurants in Thailand, as well as Indian merchandise for sale.

The Holi color-splashing practice is comparable to the Songkran Festival water-throwing tradition in Thailand and other Southeast Asian nations.

The goal of the event is to disseminate the message of fraternity and humanity. As a symbol of this message, individuals wear white and preserve their color-stained garments on the day of the celebration. The event is scheduled to be a vibrant and joyful celebration of variety and culture, emphasizing Thailand’s tolerance and openness to diverse customs and beliefs.
