Krishna Janmashtami, which is popularly known as Janmashtami or Gokulashtami celebrates the birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu today i.e. 24/08/2019. It is observed according to Hindu luni-solar calendar, on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in Shraavana of the lunar Hindu Calendar and Krishna Paksha in Bhadrapad of the lunisolar Hindu Calendar, which overlaps with August and September of the Gregorian calendar.
