The celebration of the birth Lord Krishna. Quite, like Jesus, Krishna's birth is prophetic and dramatic. He is an avatar(incarnation) of Lord Vishnu and throughout his life as a human, he's the supporter of the righteous.
Janmashtami or Gokulashtami is celebrated in South India with a colorful array of miniature dolls recreating the birth and life of Lord Krishna. It's also a culinary extravagance and treats children as Gods.
Visit the homes and temples, appreciate the culture and learn a bit about South Indian religions and communities.
