Govardhan Puja is a festival celebrating the pastime of Lord Krishna lifting Govardhan Hill on His little finger for seven days to protect the residents of Vrindavan from torrential rains sent by Indra. This pastime shows how Lord Krishna is Deva Deva – the lord of the demigods.
To celebrate this festival where we worship Lord Krishna as the lifter of Govardhan Hill, a small replica of Govardhan Hill will be made from various edibles, which is then offered to the Lord and subsequently distributed to everyone.
