Govardhan is actually a place named for a mountain named Govardhan; which has it’s own importance because once Lord Krishna picked it up in air on his little finger to save all the people of Govardhan from the enourmous raining.
-The Raining Caused due to Giriraj Poojan done by villagers there expecting Rain will fall after Giriraj Poojan suggested by Deity Krishna.
Now it is tradition to “Parikrama” around the Goverdhan Mountain which is in 21 kms of area. This Govardhan Parikrama is use to carry by walking bare foot to 21 kms all around Govardhan mountain.
There are a lot of beautiful temples in way to Govardhan-Parikrama which all have their beauty and sounds very relaxing.
-An interesting fact about Govardhan Mountain is that it is descending in ground about a few millimeters day by day and supposed to disappear after end of “Kalayuga” (An age of downfall” 4th & last period of world development according to Hindu Scriptures)
(However the downfall in height of Govardhan Mountain have it Mythological existence whereas no actual scientific or archeological fact proves that)
