Manipur also known as the land of Radha and Krishna, in the best of traditions, has gifted to India's classical dance repertoire her lyrical Ras Leela dance that re -enacts the love story of Radha and Krishna.
Ras Leela is based on the legendary love of Radha and Krishna and the devotion of Gopis to Lord Krishna. Performance in a mandap close to a temple can sometime last all night.
Shri Govindaji Temple is an important venue for these performances, particularly on the night of Basanta Purnima and Kartika Purnima. This performance here spearheads other performances in the city's various venues.
If you get a chance to witness this spectacular celebration of dance and music, feel blessed and enjoy the same.
