Lord Krishna’s birthday is usually celebrated by Hindus at midnight, but the Shri Nathji Sanatan Hindu Mandir temple on Whipps Cross Road, Leytonstone, held an event at mid-day today instead to encourage other members of the community to attend.
The celebration of Lord Krishna’s birthday, known as Janmashtami, is a major event in the Hindu calendar akin to Christmas for Christians, marked by a day of fasting, praying and singing.
Waltham Forest Police's Borough Commander, Mark Collins, attended the event, which also marked the 34 years the temple has been open.
