Indra Kunda is a serene and ancient reservoir. According to local pastimes, when Krishna stopped the worship of Lord Indra, the king of the demigods in Vrindavan, and instead encouraged the residents of Vrindavan to worship Govardhan Hill instead, Lord Indra unleashed torrential rains upon the residents to teach them a lesson. However, Krishna lifted the sacred Govardhan Hill on His little finger of His left hand, creating a protective umbrella for the inhabitants. The astonished people sought refuge beneath the hill while Lord Indra's fury was subdued.

It is believed that during this miraculous incident, Lord Krishna's lotus feet created impressions (charans) on the ground, and the rainwater collected in these footprints, forming the Indra Kunda. This divine connection with Lord Krishna and His lilas makes Indra Kunda an incredibly sacred spot for devotees from around the world.

It is also said that this kunda was formed by the tears of Lord Indra as he fell at the feet of Lord Sri Krishna with regret and dismay. Once realizing his mistake of not acknowledging child Krishna as the Supreme Person, Lord Indra humbly bowed down to Sri Krishna, offering beautiful tears and prayers. 

Today, we maintain this special place every day for the pleasure of the residents of Vrindavan and the traveling pilgrims alike.
