In some Indian states, Govardhan Puja is celebrated by making the hillocks of cow dung which represents the Mount Govardhan. Then people decorate the hillocks by flowers and worship them. Devotees make rounds around the hillocks and pray to Lord Govardhan to save their life as always. At some places it is celebrated as a part of the Diwali such as the Padva or Bali Pratipada to commemorate the King Bali. And at some places it is enjoyed as a Gujarati New Year because the Vikram Samvat begins at this day.
