Parshuram Jayanti

Celebrated on Vaisakh Sud Trij, on this day, one shall bathe in a tirthdhaam (pilgrimage), perform Pooja and carry out Bhramcharya. Parshuram Bhagwan was born on this day and he got his name Parshuram because he used a Parshu (an axe) to kill all the Kshatriyas on earth. Parshuram means the bearer of an axe.
