Celebrating Lord Krishna’s Birthday party in the City
Thursday 25th August, 4pm till midnight
People from all over Leicestershire will come together to celebrate Shri Krishna Janmasthami, the biggest birthday party of the year, at the temple on Leicester's Granby Street.
Festivities will continue up till midnight, with mantra meditation, temple dance, and drama. Devotees will perform a grand abhishek–bathing ceremony of the deity of Krishna. ISKCON Leicester is currently the only temple in Leicester who observes the festival through to midnight—the time of Lord Krishna’s descent into this world, over 5000 years ago.
