Shri Giriraj ji Maharaj Temple (Govardhan, Uttar Pradesh) – Starting Point of Govardhan Hill Parikrama

Shri Giriraj ji Maharaj Temple, Govardhan, Uttar Pradesh

After visiting Samadhi of Surdas and Chandra Sarovar 5 km more drive and we stop at Daan Ghati temple as it is the start of the Giriraj Parikrama. A visit to Shri Giriraj ji Maharaj temple.

Devotees before starting Giriraj parikrama visit the temple and then for 21 km journey. Few walk or use vehicles or many you will watch doing sashtang dandwat.

It is said once for 7 days there was continuous raining. Braj people were scared. That time Lord Krishna lifted Giriraj – The mountain on his left-hand finger to create shelter to save villagers from rain.

We did the parikrama by our hired vehicles because of few old devotees and also to save time to continue ‘Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra.’
