Mumbai: Two years after the Corona period, the 5249th birth anniversary of Lord Shri Krishna will be celebrated on Friday with full devotion across the state. All the temples in Mumbai and the suburbs are decorated with colorful flower lights and electric lights to celebrate Shri Krishna Janmotsav. Sri Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated today in all Radha Krishna temples run by the International Society for Sri Krishna Consciousness (International Association of Sri Krishna Consciousness) ISKCON. To this end, the temple management is paying special attention to comfort and safety.

This year Ashtami being two days and there was no Rohini Nakshatra on both days, there was confusion about Janmashtami, but because Ashtami is Ashtami on Friday, the decision to celebrate it today was made in Mathura-Vrindavan and other places. Dahi Handi is usually celebrated in Maharashtra and Mumbai on the day after Janmashtami, but this year for the first time Dahi Handi will be celebrated before Janmashtami.
