Rukmini Dwadashi, or Sri Rukmini Dvadasi, is observed as the birthday (the day Rukmini Devi appeared on earth) of Rukmini, the consort of Lord Krishna. In 2023, the date of Rukmini Dwadashi is May 2. The love story of Rukmini and Lord Krishna and their elopement is one of the most famous stories associated with Lord Krishna. Rukmini Dwadashi is observed on the twelfth day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) of Vaisakh month (April – May). It is believed that those who offer worship prayers and pujas with flowers will have their wishes fulfilled. Prayers dedicated to Rukmini Devi are held on the day at Lord Krishna Temples. Special pujas are held at the Dwarkadhish Temple in Mathura on the day. She is worshipped for early marriage and for a successful and fruitful married life.
