Krishna Janmashtami is an annual Hindu celebration held during the monsoons (August – September). It celebrates the birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu.
The birth of Lord Krishna is celebrated with impressive decorations and clothing along with strong feeling of excitement and enthusiasm. Devotees usually observe fasts, sing devotional songs in praise of the lord, participate in Dahi Handi celebrations, and hold ceremonies in temples where Lord Krishna is welcomed each year. As a part of the ritual, statues of baby Krishna are washed and placed for worship.
The day is celebrated with great zeal, and people, from children to the elderly, revel in joy on this day.
