Its more than 4 years since my last trip to Govardhan. Myself along with Deepak Singh and Kamal Sareen had planned to do Parikrama of Govardhan on Sunday 25th Nov'12.
As planned we started early morning (6:00 am) and refilled CNG on Faridabad and took left turn to Govardhan on the highway. The road to Govardhan (21Kms) is horrible. AS it was sunday and Kartik month there was heavy rush and no parking space. We parked our Car on the road and started the Parikrama. The climate was pleasant and the atmosphere was very much charged.
There were many people and groups. Many groups were doing the parikrama doing bhajans & singing along with the Musical instrumentation. People were also doing Aarati(Carrying incense sticks) and Abhisekh (Carrying Milk pots).
Sick and elderly people were on Cars and Hand pulled carts. The whole length is covered with stalls selling beverages, fruits and juices. There were many beggars also pestering the pilgrims.
By 6:00 pm we had completed the circumnavigation. We returned via Mathura the road was Good on this path. Reached home by 12:00 Night
