Rituals of Dola Purnima Festival in Odisha celebrated before Holi.

Dola Purnima is a Great festival in odisha. On this day Lord Jagannath is worshiped as the name of Dolagovinda in this festival. It falls on full moon day in the month of falguna. People enjoyed this festival with fun and happiness. 

On this special day villagers take the krishna murti in dola and  roaming every house in night, with great procession by the music of drummers, pipers and the sankirtana mandalis, people believed that god comes to their house for taking prasad, so they clean their house front with cow dung and make special alpana to welcome Krishna and offer various types of fruits.

In various Puranas Dola purnima or Madanamohana describe in various way.
Happy Dola Purnima.
