Krishna Janmashtami Festival Tour – Mathura & Vrindavan
Janmashtami Festival is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Lord Krishna. Mathura and Brindavan rings with the memories of Lord Krishna. He was born in Mathura. In Brindavan, located at a distance of about 15 km from Mathura, he loitered about in his youth in the company of his gopis. So there is unbelievable fun and excitement at these places centering this festival.

There is a temple on the exact spot where Krishna was born. On the occasion of Janmashtami, a large number of pilgrims from all over the country come to visit this Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple. They listen to the preaching by the priests of the temple. In the main hall of the temple, a ceremony takes place. The idol of Lord Krishna is bathed by the priests and mantras are chanted. After the completion of this ceremony people break their day long fast. At midnight, the hour when Shri Krishna was born, the deity is taken out of the temple and people jostle each other to get a view of the idol. The air reverberates with the sound of conch shells and shouts in praise of the Lord.
There is great merriment on this occasion. The ambience in Mathura and Brindavan is very cheerful. Small shops spring up all over the towns selling sweets and snacks and other small items associated with Lord Krishna. The festival is celebrated according to the Hindu calendar. It falls on the 8th day of the 15 days of no-moon in the month of Shravana. That roughly corresponds to the month of August or September in the English Calendar.
