Ashtami Rohini

Also called as Sri Jayanti and Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini is the day when Lord Krishna’s birthday is celebrated in some regions of India, especially where the solar calendar is followed. The most famous temples of Krishna in India namely the Udupi Sri Krishna temple in Karnataka and Guruvayur Guruvayurappan temple in Kerala celebrate the Krishna Janmashtami on this day.

What is the difference?

In most regions of India, Krishnashtami or Krishna’s birth is celebrated based on the lunar calendar. During most of the years, the dates of Krishnashtami and Ashtami Rohini can differ by one or two days only. However, during some years, the difference can be by about a month. In most North Indian states, Krishna Jayanti is celebrated on the Krishna Paksha Ashtami day in the month of Bhadrapada (August – September) and in most south Indian states, it is celebrated in the Shravan (July – August) month.

Celebrations at Guruvayur temple

Multitude of devotees throngs at the Guruvayur temple in Kerala dedicated to Lord Krishna on the day of Rohini Ashtami. Special recipes made of rice paste and jaggery named Appam and palpayasam (sweet milk porridge) are offered to the Lord in the Guruvayur temple. In the temples of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, it is very common to see a lot of festivities and fairs on this days. In most households, people perform special pujas to Lord Krishna by installing an idol of little Krishna and drawing the footsteps of Krishna leading from the main doorstep to the puja room. Ashtami Rohini is one of the most popular and enthusiastically celebrated festivals in the Hindu households.
