Janmashtami, a Hindu festival, rejoices in the birth of Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Vishnu. This festive occasion is alternately referred to as Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, and Shri Krishna Janmashtami.

Celebrated on the eighth day of the dark fortnight in the Hindu calendar month of Bhadrapada (August–September), the choice of this date is symbolic. The number eight holds particular significance in Krishna's legend as he is recognized as the eighth child of his mother, Devaki.
