Lord  Varaha, continuing with the description  of various  holy places  told Prithvi about the magnificence of Govardhan parvat- “Govardhan parvat is situated near Mathura. It will have great religious importance because it will witness a great feat of mine in Dwapar Yuga. I shall lift this mountain to protect people from the incessant rain caused by Indra. There are numerous holy places of great religious significance in the vicinity of Govardhan mountain like Indra tirth, Yama  tirth,  Varuna  tirth  and  Kubera  tirth.  There  is  also  a  famous  fresh-water  lake  called

‘Kadamb khand’ where people perform tarpan of their ancestors.”
