He told that you ought to all worship the Annakut hill or Govardhan Parbat as he's the real God who is nurturing and saving your lives from forceful conditions by providing you with food and shelter.

Finally, Lord Krishna had saved their lives by lifting the Govardhan hill at his little finger and coated the people of Gokul under that. in this manner, proud Indra had defeated by the Lord avatar. Now, the day is widely known as Govardhan Puja to offer the homage to the Govardhan Parbat. Govardhan puja festival is also being celebrated because of the Annakut.
The day is also celebrated as Padva or Bali Pratipada within the Maharashtra because it is taken into account that demon King Bali was defeated and pushed to Patal Loka by the Lord Vishnu in the sort of Vamana (incarnation of Lord Vishnu).
