Lord krishna's Birthday

Gokulashtami is celebrated with great fervor in South India. In Tamil Nadu, the people decorate the floor with kolams.

They draw the footprints of Lord Krishna from the threshold of the house to the temple, which depicts the arrival of Lord Krishna into the house. A recitation of Bhagwadgita is also a popular practise.

The offerings made to Lord Krishna include fruits, betel and butter. Savories believed to be Lord Krishna’s favorites are prepared with great care. The most important of them are Seedai, Sweet Seedai, Verkadalai Urundai.
