As per Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna had lifted the Govardhan parvat (mountain) on his finger to protect the people of Mathura village from heavy rain. Lord Krishna can be seen in the same form, holding the parvat on one finger and playing flute with his other hand, as an idol at the Shrinathji temple, Nathdwara, Rajasthan. This temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna, so it is also known as the haveli of Lord Krishna. The Shrinathji temple also houses the idol of Shrinathji, who was an incarnation of Lord Krishna in 14th century. The same idol was initially worshiped at Mathura but it was brought to Nathdwara as Mughal ruler Aurangzeb, was destructing Hindu idols. Nathdwara is a small town located at a distance of 48 km from Udaipur. After this deity, Nathdwara also became famous by the name of ‘Shrinathji’.

Legends say that the idol of Lord Krishna when being transferred from Vrindavan to a safer place, then at the same place where the temple is located today, the wheels of the bullock cart carrying the idol got struck in mud. It was not moving further. After seeing this, the accompanying priest realized that this is the chosen place by the Lord himself. So, the temple was constructed on that very place.
