Goa Tourism dept takes Chikhal Kalo to a next level, tourism with a difference


Marcel: Goa Tourism department’s involvement in Chikhal Kalo festival has taken the festivities to another level.

The festival dedicated to Shree Devki Krishna Temple at Marcel has been an annual affair for centuries. It is not just playing in the mud, but also has a tradition of playing Bhajan in the temple for 24 hours and other rituals.

The games that Lord Krishna played during his childhood are aped during the festival. No wonder, that is why, even the children participate in this festival with full vigour.

Goa News Hub has brought extensive coverage of the festival through Instagram reels and other videos. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to watch the detailed coverage.
