After leaving the town of Govardhana, you come to the village of Aniyora. This town is about 3 km (2 miles) from the town of Govardhana on the parikrama path. It is said that the cowherd boys and girls had wonderful pastimes here with Krishna.
In Bengali, aniyora means “bring more.” In this village, the Annakuta festival took place. After the residences of Braja offered a huge feast to Govardhana, Krishna assumed a huge form and declared that He was actually Govardhana Hill. He then ate all the offered food. Govardhana Hill then asked the cowherd men to “bring more.”
This is why this place is named #Aniyora.
