About :

Janmashtami also called as Gokulashtami is more popularly known as Sri Krishna Janmashtami which is celebrated on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in Shraavana of the lunar Hindu Calendar.

It is an annual Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. It is an important festival particularly for the Vaishnavism tradition of Hinduism. According to Hindu mythology, it is believed that the birth of Lord Krishna happened to kill the demon Kansa who happens to be his maternal uncle and this is mentioned in Bhagavad gita.

People celebrate this festival by worshiping Lord Krishna, and also perform dance-drama enactments depicting the life of Krishna according to the Bhagavata Purana (such as Rasa Lila or Krishna Lila). People also celebrate by singing devotional through the midnight when Krishna is believed to have been born, fasting (upavasa), a night vigil (jagarata), and a festival (mahotsava) on the following day are a part of the Janmashtami celebrations .Sri Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated particularly in Mathura and Brindavan, along with major Vaishnava and non-sectarian communities found in Manipur, Assam, West Bengal, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and other regions.
