Goverdhan Puja is a Hindu festival wherein devotees prepare and offer various types of vegetarian food to the idols of Parmatma (God) to show their gratitude. This festival is also known as Annakut or Annakoot (translated as “a mountain of food”). Goverdhan Puja falls on the 4th day of Diwali. It is also the first day of the new year in the Vikram Samvat calendar. This year it falls on October 28, 2019.

The festival is observed by many Hindu denominations but is particularly prominent among the Vallabh Sampradaya (Pushtimarg), the Gaudiya Sampradaya of Chaitanya, and the Swaminarayan Sampradaya. Govardhan Puja and offering food to God is also significant as it gives us the message of conserving our natural resources. Worshipping the natural elements has always been a practice in Hinduism.
