Janmashtami is a sacred festival of Hindus that is celebrated on Ashtami or eighth day of the Hindu month Bhadrapada. This festival celebrates the birth of one of the avatars of Vishnu, namely Lord Krishna.

Krishna is a sacred God of Hindus and occupies a special place in their hearts. As a child, he was very notorious and became popular for his miraculous deeds as well as for notoriety.
