The idols of Gods are created from dung on the day of Govardhan Puja. People often decorate and revere their livestock. It is also regarded as a festival of love and respect formed between humans and environment.

The puja procedure is almost same to other pujas in that individuals take a bath and put on new clothing in the morning before constructing a statue of God and putting bhog on it. With addition to Govardhan Dev, Lord Krishna is worshipped by bathing him in milk.

Goverdhan Puja History

There is an old narrative about this worship; it is stated that Lord Krishna once told the Gokul inhabitants to worship Govardhan instead of Indradev. Previously, the people of Gokul worshipped Indradev as their favourite idol.

Lord Krishna explained to the Gokul inhabitants that their animals acquire fodder from the Govardhan mountain. It only rains in Gokul because of the Govardhan mountain. As a result, the Govardhan Parvat should be worshipped instead of Indradev.

When Indradev learned about Shri Krishna, he became enraged and began pouring heavily in Brij. Then Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan Mountain on his little finger to shield the Brij people and save them from Indra’s anger. Brij’s people then presented Shri Krishna with 56 bhog. Shri Krishna was pleased with this and promised to always safeguard the people of Gokul.
