Various religious arrangements were made at ISKCON temple, Sri Ram Mandir and many other temples where Aarti, kirtan, bhajan and recitation of Bhagwad Gita were held. Idols of Sri Krishna were bathed, decorated at midnight, and worshiped at homes with many rituals performed during prayers. After all the rituals were performed, people broke their fast and the Prasad was shared with all the people around. Many spiritual and cultural organisations also celebrated the festival at different places in the city with full zeal by organising fancy dress competitions and dance programmes.
Sri Krishna Janmashtami is observed on the ‘Ashtami tithi’, the eighth day of the Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadraba in the Hindu calendar. Lord Krishna took birth to end the wickedness which was growing day by day during those days.
