Govardhan is a pilgrimage centre situated near the religious site of Mathura in Uttar Pradesh. It is famous for the Govardhan Hill that was once held by Lord Krishna on the little finger of His hand for seven days. Another major attraction in the town is the Mansi Ganga Tank which has various enclosures built by Raja Bhagwan Das and Raja Man Singh. This tank is also known as the Pancha Tirtha Kund that has water from the rivers of Gomati, Sarayu, Narmada, Vetri and Kanchi.
The Kusum Sarovar, situated in town, is considered to be the place where Lord Krishna used to spend His time with Radha and the gopis. The lake is surrounded by kadamba trees and is an ideal place for meditating and offering prayers to the lord. The Govardhan Parikrama path has several ancient temples like the Har Deva Ji temple, International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) temple, Daan-Ghati and Mukharibind.
