Janmashtami is one of the most important Hindu festivals that celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna. It is celebrated with great devotion all over India and is a time of joy and festivities. This year, 2023, Krishna Janmashtami will be celebrated on consecutive days, September 6th and 7th due to Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi. Janmashtami is a time to honour Lord Krishna and offer him special bhog items.

Bhog items are an integral part of worship offered to the divine deity during Janmashtami. The items consist of traditional cooked delicacies and sweets, as well as fruits and flowers. All these items are offered to the Lord as a sign of love and respect.

The traditional bhog offered to Lord Krishna on Janmashtami consists of a range of delicious dishes. Here we have listed the top 10 bhog items:
