Upcoming Festival

            Krishna Janmashtami is an annual celebration commemorating the birth of Krishna. It is celebrated on the 8th day of Bhadrapada month (August). Krishna was born to Devaki and Vasudeva couple, when they were imprisoned by Devaki’s brother, Kamsa. Krishna was born as the 8th child of Devaki-Vasudeva couple. All the first 7 infants were killed by Kamsa. Mathura is considered as the birth place of Krishna. Hindus celebrate Krishna Janmashtami by fasting, worshiping Krishna and by performing Pooja. There is a game like ritual related to this occasion. It involves making a human  pyramid and breaking an earthen pot tied at a height. This ritual is most popular in Maharashtra. Bring home the beautiful idol of krishna on this special occasion to make the festival more alive.
