⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Pichwai is created to depict the story of Shrinathji, another form of Lord Krishna holding the Govardhan hill. There is a beguiling history attached to the story. The dwellers of Vrindavan faced Lord Indra's (Lord of heaven) anger in the form of heavy thunderstorms and rains. Henceforth Lord Krishna came to the rescue. He lifted the Govardhan Hill also called Govardhan Parvat on his little finger. Lord Krishna lifted the hill named Govardhan on his little finger and all the people of Vrindavan took sanctuary under the hill. Thereafter Lord Indra realized his mistake and stopped the tribulation. People since that time have been worshiping Govardhan Hill.⠀
