Krishna Janmashtami is one of the most celebrated festivals in India. It is an annual Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. The largest celebration of this festival takes place in the cities of Mathura and Vrindavan, where Krishna is believed to have been born and spent his time while growing up.

This year, there is a bit of confusion regarding the date and timings of Krishna Janmashtami, whether it will be celebrated on Thursday, August 18 or Friday, August 19, 2022.

According to the Vedic Panchang, Ashtami Tithi will begin from 9:21 pm on August 18 and will end at 10:59 pm on August 19, 2022 so it will be celebrated on both days while the Nishith Puja time begins from 12:02 am on August 18 and ends at 12:48 pm on the same day.
