Shree Krishna Janmaashtami celebrations

As you may have read in my previous post, Krishnaashtami is one of the most auspicious days in Hinduism. On this day (in fact to be perfect, around moonrise), Hindus worship Sree Krishna with special pooja in their homes. There are also special poojaas and festivities  in Vaishnavite temples such as this one.
