The Colour Orange

The hindu festival of Kumbh Mela in Nashik is a sea of colour and the commonest colour is orange or saffron. It is an important colour to Hindus and carries with it a lot of symbolism.

Saffron represents fire and because fire purifies it is considered the colour of purity and sanctity. It is also the colour of the Rajput warrior cast.
