Govardhan Palace - Govardhan Hill
18th July 2005

Iskcon's Govardhan Palace temple

....climbing the stairway to heaven !

This beautiful property was formerly owned by Maharaja Chattarpur from Madhya Pradesh...
  ...who was worshiping a beautiful Govardhana-sila in a small shrine. When devotees moved in, they continued the worship of this Deity. During digging of large hole for the underground water tank, the devotees discovered a Govardhana-sila that turned out to be exactly the same size and shape as the existing Krisna-sila...
  ...this sila was whitish in colour and now it is worshiped as Balarama at Krisna's side.

...this altar is just to the right of the other but in an alcove.
