geographical name
a sacred mountain situated in the middle of Vraja-maṇḍala about 26 km north-west of Mathurā. This mountain is also known as Śrī Girirāja (the king among mountains). He is identical with Śrī Kṛṣṇa and is also known as haridāsa-varya, the best devotee of Śrī Hari, for He facilitates Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes with His intimate friends and especially the most sacred pastimes with the gopīs. Govardhana Hill lies in the shape of a peacock, with Rādhā-kuṇḍa and Śyāma-kuṇḍa as His eyes
