Make Krishnashtami Special with these Adorable Outfits for your Bal Gopalas

The season of Hindu festivities has officially started. Krishna Janmashtami, also known as Krishnashtami and Gokulashtami is around the corner. On this day, Hindus across the world celebrate the earthly birth of Lord Krishna. It is believed that Lord Krishna is the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu.

Lord Krishna successfully took birth amidst all the conspiracies revolving around killing him in his mother’s womb itself. This is why we celebrate Krishnashtami every year. This year, the festival will be observed on August 18. 

Krishnashtami dress ideas for boys

Devotees of Lord Krishna have already started prepping for their much-awaited festival. Hindu temples are also decorated with lights and flowers to celebrate the birth of Bal Gopala.

While adults are busy decorating their houses and preparing delicacies for the Puja, little kids are all about getting dressed up as little Kanhas and Radhas and helping their parents in taking care of simple tasks.

As easy as it may sound, only parents know how difficult it is to get festival-appropriate outfits for their little ones especially when it comes to dresses for boys. Take a look at our Krishnashtami dress suggestions for your little Gopalas out there:
