About Nand Mahotsav

The Nand Mahotsav festival is celebrated on the day following Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna and commemorates the celebrations in the home of Nandraya and Yashoda, Lord Krishna’s foster parents.It is believed that Nanda (Krishna’s foster father) and Gokul village celebrated the birth of Lord Krishna the previous night by indulging in music, dance, and many games. One of the most important among these is the Dahi Handi. Across India, young boys form a human pyramid and attempt to break a curd filled earthen pot tied at a considerable height, mimicking Gokul’s original celebrations. Dahi Handi involves much skill and dexterity and can invoke much competition among the participating groups.
