Krishna Janmashtami, the annual celebration of the birth of Lord Krishna, who is the eighth avatar of Vishnu, will be celebrated on Saturday, 5 September this year.

Born to king Vasudeva and Devaki of Mathura, Lord Krishna's birth anniversary is observed on the eighth day of Shravan month (August–September) as per the Indian calendar.

The festival is also known as Srikrishna Jayanthi, Gokulashtami, Saatam Aatham and Ashtami Rohini.

Rasa lila and Dahi Handi are the major attractions of the festival. Rasa lila or Rasa dance describes the story of Krishna, in which he dances with Radha and her companions. It is mainly performed in Mathura and Vrindavan. Meanwhile, Dahi Handi or uriadi, the festival in which young men form human towers to break the high-hanging pot of butter, celebrates the Lord's mischievous side.
