Krishna Lifts Govardhana Hill
Govardhan hill is located near Vrindavan and is considered sacred the Hindus. According to Vaishnava legend the Vedic demi-god, Indra was losing his hold over the human beings, and became jealous of the boy Krishna (an incarnation of the Supreme God according to the Bhagavata Purana. Indra thus invoked many clouds to appear in the sky and schemed to flood the region with rains lasting for seven days and seven nights. Krishna in reply then lifted Govardhan hill, under which all the animals and people of the region took shelter, safe from the rains of Indra's fury. Ultimately, Indra accepted defeat, and after praying to Krishna, left for his heavenly abode, the Svarga.
