Krishna Janmashtami is a Hindu festival that marks the birth of Lord Krishna. Believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, lord Krishna was born on the eighth day or Ashtami at midnight in the holy month of Shravana. Hence, this year, devotees across the world will celebrate it on Monday, August 14. In some place, the festival will also be observed on the next day, August 15.

On the special day, devotees pay a visit to Krishna temples besides celebrating it with great enthusiasm by holding dance and drama performances, Dahi Handi and others.
