However, this time people are quite confused about the date of Krishna Janmashtami. People are confused whether Janmashtami should be celebrated on 23 August or 24 August.
Actually, it is believed that Lord Krishna was born on the eighth day of Bhadrapada i.e. Krishna Paksha of Bhado month in Rohini Nakshatra. If we look at Ashtami Tithi, then Janmashtami should be on 23 August, but if we consider Rohini Nakshatra, then it should be Krishna on 24 August.
