Govardhan Puja

Govardhan Puja is observed on the second day of Diwali, focusing on the worship of Govardhan Mountain (Giriraj Ji) and the cow, symbolic forms of Shri Krishna. This day holds particular significance in honoring Lord Krishna, with a dedicated focus on devotion and love towards Him.

Renowned as Annakoot Puja, Govardhan Puja involves special rituals dedicated to Mother Cow and Govardhan Mountain. The day commemorates the belief that Shri Krishna, on this occasion, humbled the ego of Indra. The celebration is marked by the expression of deep reverence for Lord Krishna and the acknowledgment of His divine deeds.
