ISKCON London Govardhan Puja 2017

Friday October 20 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pm

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.
