Krishna Janmashtami 2022

The most significant and well-known festival for Hindus is Krishna Janmashtami. Because Lord Krishna was born on this holy day, Hindus regard it as the most auspicious day of the year.

This year, Janmashtami will be observed on August 18 and August 19. India celebrates the event on the eighth day of the dark fortnight during the month of Bhadrapada (July-August).

The Hindu festival of Krishna Janmashtami, also known as Krishnashtami, Sri Krishna Jayanti, Gokulashtami, or just Janmashtami, honours the birth of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar or incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Everyone, from young kids to the elderly, participates in the celebration with great zeal. The Janmashtami festival is known for its animated rituals, magnificent decorations, and prayer offerings.
