It falls on the eleventh day of the Krishna paksha of the month of Shravan and people fast all day and worship Lord Vishnu. People praying for children often observe this ekadashi. This is also the day when the five day Jhulan Yatra begins with the images of Lord Krishna and Radha being placed on swings and worshipped with flowers and incense as women serenade the deities with songs.
