Since the festival, Janmashtami is edging close, so here we are bringing you the reason, why the world celebrates Janmashtami. Back more than five thousand years ago, when Lord Krishna was born in a jail of Mathura by Goddess Devki, and soon he was moved by his father, Vasudev to the land of Vrindavan. And there her whole life began and ended. Vrindavan is the place, where Lord Krishna had played with his brother Balram, the gopiyas, and not to forget, Radha. Lord Krishna had always been famous for his love interest with Goddess Radha, with whom his love was eternal.

The celebration had started but the birth of Lord Krishna was in the midnight of the eighth day of the lunar month. A five thousand and two hundred and three years ago, Lord Krishna came into this world and spread his love with the world.
