KRISHNA JAYANTHI | GOKULASHTAMI RECIPES

Krishna Jayanthi also called as Krishna Janmashtami/Gokulashtami is celebrated every year during the month of Avani on Krishna Baksha Ashtami. This year Gokulashtami falls on 17-Aug-2014.
Some families perform elaborate poojas during the sunset. We typically draw various kolams(not to miss the Kutti Krishna foot print) with rice flour and perform a simple pooja in the evening.
