Krishna Janamasthami is one of the most important festivals celebrated in India and all over the world. It marks the birth of Lord Krishna and is celebrated on the eight day  of the dark fortnight in the month of Shravan.  Lord Krishna is believed to be the eigth incarnation of Vishnu and  is worshipped with utmost devotion. Fasting, pooja, rituals, songs and bhajans, sweets and savoury offerings  are all observed during this festival with utmost enthusiasm and devotion.

Usually aval payasa or aval ( rice flakes) mixed with coconut is offered to the Lord as Krishna was fond of poha.
