This day recalls the incident in the Bhagavata Purana when Lord Krishna raised the Govardhan hill to save the villagers of Vrindavan from torrential rains.

When the Brijwasi did not worship the God Indra at the behest of Shri Krishna, Indra had showered rage on the Brijwasi with anger. When Krishna lifted the Govardhan mountain on his little finger for seven days to avoid the torrential rain of the Brijwasi, and the gop-gopiyain lived happily in his shadow. On the seventh day, the Lord laid down Govardhan and ordered him to celebrate Annakoot by worshiping Govardhan every year. Indra then apologized to Lord Krishna and from then on the festival started to be celebrated as Annakoot.
