Nand Bhawan


Nand Bhawan

The Supreme Lord Shree Krishna and Yogmaya took birth as twins from the womb of mother Yashoda in her room in Nanda’s place. They were born at midnight on Astami (the eight day after the full moon) in the month of Bhadra when the star (nakshatra) known as Rohini was visible in the sky.
One can take darshan of Yogmaya here. Srimad-bhagvatam vividly describes how the most fortunate Nanda Baba became very joyful upon receiving a son. After the ceremony known as nadicheda-samskara had been performed, in which the umbilical cord is cut, baby Krishna was bathed and so on. Nanda Baba then called the Brahmans to perform the various purificatory rituals and other rites of childbirth.
