This kunda was created from the torrent of tears shed by Lord Indra when he came to offer his humble obeisance’s and beg forgiveness from Lord Krishna. Indra had mistakenly tried to destroy Vrindavana with a great deluge of water by sending the samvartaka rainclouds of devastation, and in a repentant mood, he shed so many tears that a small kunda was formed. This kunda has almost disappeared and is very hard to find as it is always dry accept sometimes in the rainy season.
This kunda was created by Lord Indra’s elephant carrier Airavata, when he stored water in this kunda from the celestial River Ganges which is known as the Mandakini River. The water was later used for the bathing ceremony of Lord Krishna that was performed by the heavenly king Indra at Govinda-kunda.
