Govardhan Puja (Annakut Puja)  or Bali Pratipada is a Hindu festival that is usually held a day after the main Diwali in the month of Kartik. Depending on the lunar cycles, there is sometimes a one day gap between Diwali and Govardhan Puja. 

Govardhan Puja is celebrated as the day Lord Krishna defeated the God Indra. 

Devotees celebrate Govardhan Puja by preparing a large variety of vegetarian food such as wheat, rice, curry of gram flour and leafy vegetables in order to offer them to Lord Krishna.
