It is the lilasthali of Lord Shri Krishna. It was here that Lord Krishna raised the Govardhan mountain on his junior finger to save the Brajvas from the wrath of Indra in Dwapara Yuga. Govardhan Parvat is also known as the devotee Giriraj Ji.
Devotees from far and wide come to circumambulate Giriraj Ji for centuries. The circumambulation of this kilometer Kos is about 211 kilometers. Major sites enroute are Anyur, Govind Kund, Tatha’s Lotha Jatipura Radhakund, Kusum Sarovar, Mansi Ganga, Danaghat etc.
Where the parikrama begins, there is also a famous temple called the Danaghat temple.
Govardhan Parvat is three miles from Radhakund. Previously this Giriraj was spread over 7 kos (211 km), now you have entered the earth. This is the Kusum lake, which is very beautiful. Here was Haridevji, who passed through Vajranabha, he left from here during Aurangzebi period. A second statue was established in his place from behind.
This temple is very beautiful. There is a temple of Ekachakreshwar Mahadev here in the residence of Shri Prakashkrishnabh. Govardhan village is situated above and around Giriraj and there is a mansadevi temple. On the Mansinga, there is the face of Giriraj, where he is worshiped and a fair is organized on the new moon of Ashadhi Purnima and Kartik.
In Govardhanan there is the footprint of God on the Surbhi cow, Airavat elephant and a rock. On the Mansi Ganga, which was generated by God from his mind, Deepamalika is done on the day of Diwali, in which ghee is spent, there is a beautiful journey. People here revolve around Dandauti. Dandauti Parikrama is done in such a way that by spreading the hands forward, lie on the ground and as far as the hands extend, they pull the line and then lie in front of it.
Similarly, while lying down or prostrating, we do circumambulation, which is completed in one week to two weeks. Here Gorochan, Dharmarochan, Papamochan and Debtmochan – these are the four kunds and the Chhatris and other beautiful buildings of Bharatpur King.
The road leading from Mathura to Digh is the place where Danaghat passes through Govardhanan Pari.) Here God had taken away Dan. There is a temple of Danayaji here. This Govardhanan had Vrindavan in Saraswatakalp in the middle of 20 Kos and Yamuna flowed around it.
