Govardhan is a hill located near the town of Vrindavan, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It considered as sacred especially in the Vaishnav traditions within Hinduism.
As the tale goes, the people of Vrindavan obeyed Krishna and stopped worshiping Indra. Indra became angry and decided to punish them. He called upon the clouds, which were under his control and asked them to rain continuously over Vrindavan. The people were terrified by the heavy rains and thought that the flood would destroy their village and they would all die. Krishna lifted the entire mountain of Goverdhan on the little finger of his left hand. He held the mountain like an umbrella for seven days and seven nights over the people of Vrindavan. At last, Indra realized his mistake and was ashamed. He asked the clouds to stop raining and apologized to Krishna.
