Govardhan Puja is a story in relation to Govardhan Puja. According to which Lord Krishna asked people to worship Govardhan Parvat instead of worshiping Indra, although before this people used to worship Indra, the god of rain.
Krishna asked people to worship Govardhan Parvat, Lord Krishna told people that Gokul residents would get fodder for animals from Govardhan Parvat. The Govardhan mountain stops the clouds and gives them rain, which leads to improved agriculture. Therefore Govardhan should be worshiped and not Indra.
Lord Krishna raised the mountain on the little finger
When Devraj Indra came to know about this, he considered it his insult and then started torrential rains on the angry Brajvas. In order to break Indra’s pride, Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan mountain on his little finger and protected the entire Gokul residents from Indra’s anger. When the Gokul residents
took refuge under Govardhan Parvat
to escape the wrath of Indra, who took refuge under Govardhan Parvat, Gokul residents made 56 bhog and offered it to Shri Krishna. Pleased with this, Shri Krishna blessed the people of Gokul that he would protect the people of Gokul.
