Phagu Purnima, also known as Holi, is being celebrated with much fanfare in the Capital and other parts of the hilly region of the country on Monday.
The festival is generally celebrated by smearing abeer (red vermilion powder) and throwing colour and water-filled balloons at each other. The festival celebrated as a symbol of the triumph of good over evil also marks the arrival of spring.
Holi revellers have gathered at different places in the Capital especially in Basantapur and Thamel to play Holi.
Here are some photos of the Holi celebration captured by the Post photographer Angad Dhakal and reporter Laxmi Gautam.
