There are several important places in the vicinity of Govardhana
Hill, which are not visited on the normal parikrama. Many of these
places are close to Govardhana Hill (within 5 km) and can be visited
by taxi. The 24 mile parikrama visits many places that are not
visited on the normal Govardhana parikrama
The parikrama starts by taking bath in Manasi Ganga. One then
takes darshan of Harideva, Manasi Devi and Brahma Kunda. After
leaving Manasi Ganga, one has to take a right turn and walk until
the road ends. When one comes to the T intersection (the road
ends), on the left side of the road is Rinamochana Kunda. Rinamochana
Kunda is near the Govardhana power station. Usually only after
it rains will there be any water in this kunda. If one bathes
in this kunda they are freed from all vices.
After taking a right turn at the T intersection and then taking
a left onto the Mathura-Sonk Road after going about 50m one reaches
Papamochana Kunda. It is said that anyone who bathes here
has all his offenses removed.
After that one return to the road to Mathura and then go in the
direction of Mathura, passing the government bus stand on the
right. Here is a small hill on the right hand side. Next to this
hill is a small pond known as Indra-dhwaja Tila. This is
where the cowherd men would normally worship Indra.
