Vrindavan, Mar 10 (ANI): Thousands of devotees played Holi with traditional yellowish-orange coloured water, extracted from dried Tesu flowers here where according to legend Lord Krishna played Holi with the Gopis.

Hindus believed that Tesu flowers possess medicinal property, besides being non-toxic.

"The artificial colours available in the market are toxic and harm people in many ways. The natural colour extracted from Tesu is skin friendly and contains medicinal properties," said Madan Gopal Goswami, an employee.

Devotees were overwhelmed with the freshness of flowers.

"The colours which are used in the temple are safe and don't cause any effect on skin. For last several days, we have been playing Holi. The devotees are welcomed with the freshness of flowers," said Meera Mahajan.
