ABOUT

Janmashtami – the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna which is also known as ‘Gokulashtami’ and ‘Krishna Jayanthi’ – is being celebrated in myriad ways across the nation. On this auspicious day, devotees celebrate the festival by participating in processions and ‘dahi handis’, dressing up their children as characters from the story of Lord Krishna’s life, and watching or staging reenactments of scenes from Hindu mythology. Our Surat is busy all day in these kinda programs.

Swami Narayan Mandir, Kalakunj, located in Varachha is one of the spots you can’t miss this Janmashtami. Time is where many devotees try to decorate the temples in the most creative manner. This temple was inaugurated by Shree Nilkanth Charandasji Swami before 25 years. Since last 18 years, the festival of Janmashtami is celebrated. The best part is for the kids where different themes are kept to entertain them. Kids can have fun to the core. On this auspicious day of Janmashtami, food is distributed to various hospitals for the needy patients. Not just on Janmashtami, every month this deed is done by the trust.

The attraction for Kalakunj is at its pick because of the Hindola (Cradle). This is no ordinary cradle. It is made out of 5, 55, 555 small, big, colorful pencils. Cradles are made for Radhe Shyam, Ghanshyam, Shankar Parvati. Temple is wonderfully decorated and illuminated. Overall 112 devotees gave their services. Night long prayers are to be offered and religious mantras are sung in the temples. You can also rock the cradle. Hare Rama Hare Krishna!
