Govardhana Puja

This festival celebrates the pastime of Lord Krishna lifting Govardhana Hill on His little finger for seven days to protect the residents of Vrindavana from torrential rains sent by the demigod, Indra. To celebrate this festival, devotees build a replica of Govardhana Hill made with various opulent foods, worship Lord Krishna as the lifter of Govardhana Hill, worship the hill as His incarnation, and worship the cows and bulls who are dear to Him. After the worship of the hill, the food items that make up the hill is distributed to everyone to relish.
