Krishnashtami (also called Gokulashtami or Krishna Jayanti) is the day Lord Sri Krishna was born. This year the date is August 25, 2016.
Sri Krishna is said to be fond of Atukulu (beaten rice, aval, avalakki or poha) as also milk and milk products such as butter and yogurt. As a result, it is customary to offer these as naivedyam on Gokulashtami.
In addition, because this festival celebrates Krishna as a child, there are also other sweets and savouries that are offered as naivedyam.
