Today Govardhan Puja is being celebrated across the country. It is also known as Annakoot. Let us tell you that on the day of Govardhan Puja, an idol of Lord Govardhan is made from cow dung and worshipped. In the evening, Govardhan Parvat and Lord Krishna are worshiped and Annakoot and Kadhi rice are offered to them. Let us tell you that there is a belief in offering Chhappan Bhog on Govardhan Puja.
