Mathura Janmasthmi

Janmashtami, the birth of Lord Krishna is celebrated with great devotion in the whole of north India. Mathura is the birthplace of Lord Krishna, where his parents lived in captivity of the evil Kansa and he as a young boy came and vanquished his maternal uncle Kansa to ascend the throne and free his parents. This weekend I was in Mathura to capture some of the intense piousness. :)
