Govardhan is situated in the hilly terrain of the hill called Giriraj. This place has abundant tales of Lord Krishna as a child. According to the Vedas, the peak has descended from the heaven itself. Legend has it that once the people of Govardhan were hit by torrential rain and the Lord himself lifted this peak for 7 consecutive days and saved the people. As per the narration in the Vedas, on one hand the peak is the greatest devotee of Lord Krishna and on the other hand, it takes up the form which cannot be distinguished from the Lord himself. It holds religious significance as it is believed that ‘Govardhan Parikrama’ would fulfill one’s wishes.
