Product Description

When Lord Krishna attained the age of six years, his father Nanda Maharaja entrusted him with the responsibility of taking care of Vrindavan’s Cows. Before this, he used to take care of the calves. As a qualified cowherd, he practically demonstrated how to shield and take care of the cows.

The appealing Pichwai brought into existence by the skilled artist shows the glimpse of the celebration. The cows, the Gopis (the cow herding girls) around Lord Krishna and the priest worshiping Shrinath Ji – the childhood form of Lord Krishna very well exhibit the essence of the occasion.
