Janmashtami 2024, Janmashtami 2024 Date

Born in Mathura, Sri Krishna's birth signified the end of demons. Sri Krishna was born to Devaki and Vasudeva in a prison in the Kansa's captivity. Krishna's father Vasudev, handed over his child at the time of his birth to his brother Nand to save Krishna from the demon King Kansa. Krishna was born in Mathura but grew up in Gokul where later on he killed his uncle, King Kansa.

Krishna Janmashtami is the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm in India and the whole world. Krishna Janmashtami is also known as Gokulashtami, Shrikrishna Jayanti or simply Janmashtami. It is celebrated on the Ashtami tithi of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight of Bhadrapad month. Krishna Janmashtami is also known as Satam Atham in Gujarat and Krishna Janmashtami is observed as Ashtami Rohini in South India mainly in Kerala.


Krishna is Devaki and Vasudeva's son and his birthday is celebrated by Hindus all over the world as Janmastami, the followers of ISCKON and Gaudiya Vaishnavism celebrate it with immense devotion and religious fervour.

Krishna was born at the time when evil was everywhere, and when he was to be killed by his uncle King Kansa. Krishna's father Vasudeva takes him across Yamuna immediately at the time he was born in Mathura, to foster parents in Gokul, named Nanda and Yashoda.

After Krishna is born at the exact midnight time, the statue of baby Krishna is washed and clothed, then placed in a cradle.
