It is observed according to the Hindu lunisolar calendar, on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in Bhadrapada, which overlaps with August or September of the Gregorian calendar.

According to Indian mythology, Lord Krishna was the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, who was born in the Dvapara Yuga.

For the Hindu community living in India and around the world, Janmashtami is an important celebration and the day itself is considered to be supremely auspicious.

The scriptures say that Lord Krishna was born at midnight, inside a prison cell in Mathura where his parents Devaki and Vasudeva were lodged.

He was then surreptitiously taken to a town near Mathura, owing to a threat to his life, where he grew up with foster parents Nanda and Yashoda, and siblings Balarama and Subhadra.
