Janmashtami Celebrations in Mathura


The festive celebration of Janmashtami is at its highest peak in the city of Mathura, the birth place of Lord Krishna. The city is about 150 kms from Delhi. Lord Krishna is said to be born here around 5000 years back to put an end to the evils of demons. The city of Mathura is decorated so beautifully that it also becomes a tourist spot during this festival.

The main celebration takes place at the actual place of birth, now converted into a big temple known as Krishna Janma Bhoomi Mandir. The place where Lord's idol is kept is also known as the ‘Garbha Griha’. Devotees keep a day-long fast and break it at midnight after the birth time of Bhagwan Krishna. All through the day devotees remain immersed in the chanting of Shlokas and name of the Lord. Songs and hymns are also sung in the glory of Lord Shri Krishna.
