Janmashtami procession passes through Lal Chowk, Srinagar

A senior citizen among the devotees said it was after two years that they were allowed to take out the Janmashtami procession in Srinagar


Kashmiri Pandits took out a Janmashtami procession to celebrate the of SriKrishna after a gap of two years on Monday amid tight security arrangements. Kashmiri Pandits and other communities came together on Monday, in Srinagar, and celebrated Janmashtami, to give out the message of brotherhood.

To celebrate the festival, a Jhanki Yatra went through the streets of Srinagar — from Zandar Mohalla Habba Kadal downtown to Lal Chowk of the capital of Kashmir.

People danced and chanted prayers of “Hare Krishna Hare Ram” as a decorated truck with idols of Krishna passed through the streets amidst tight security and Covid-19 protocol.

Many people — women and men, young and old — took part in the Jhanki Yatra, a procession, to celebrate the festival of Janmashtami, the of SriKrishna.

“This Jhanki Yatra is a beautiful way of celebrating Janmashtami because through this we can show our devotion towards SriKrishna,” a local said.

“An act of brotherhood has been shown today as all the other communities of Kashmir, cooperated during the Yatra and it was smoothly conducted”, said another local.

This act of brotherhood received a good response from all over Kashmir.

The procession started from the Ganpatyar temple in the Habba Kadal area of the city and passed through Barbarshah, Kralkhud before reaching the clock tower at the historic Lal Chowk, officials said.

They said the procession crossed over the Amirakadal bridge, passed through the Jehangir Chowk and returned to the temple. The devotees, including men, women, and children, danced alongside the chariot and distributed sweets among people.

A senior citizen among the devotees said it was after two years that they were allowed to take out the Janmashtami procession in Muslim-majority Srinagar. There was no procession in 2020 due to Covid-19 while the lockdown imposed in the wake of abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status in August 2019 had led to the cancellation of the event.

Mathura, on the other hand, saw an early morning gathering of devotees at the Sri Krishna Janmasthan. As the day progressed, the crowds swelled in Vrindavan where the festival was celebrated at three temples during the daytime. Hundreds of devotees attended the abhishek (bathing ceremony) of the deity at the Dwarkadhish temple. The ceremony at the Radha Raman temple lasted for over three hours as priests Padma Nabh Goswami, Srivatsa Goswami, Dinesh Chandra Goswami and Om Goswami jointly performed the rituals.
