This is the famous place where one can see the impression of Krishna’s lotus feet on top of the mountain. There are three such Charana Pahadis in Vraja, Kamyavana, Nandagrama, and here near Chota Bathain. The word ‘charana’ means Krishna’s ‘lotus feet’ and ‘pahadi’ means a hill. One day, Krishna and His cowherd boyfriends were herding cows at this place when they decided to climb to the top of the hill and observe the cows in the pastures below. Once on top of the hill, Krishna took out His flute and standing in His threefold bending form known as tri-bhanga-rupa, began playing such an enchanting melody that it captivated the minds of all those who heard it. Being attracted by the sweet sound of the flute, the cows gradually arrived there along with a number of forest animals including deer and antelopes, and some local village people also came there. They all stood there completely motionless along with the cowherd boys, listening to the ecstatic sounds of Krishna’s flute. Experiencing great ecstasy at the sound of the flute, even the rocks on top of the hill became softened as if they were going to melt. Because the rocks became softened due to the vibrations of the flute, the impressions of the feet of all those who had assembled there became impressed upon the rocks, including those of the cows, the various animals, the cowherd boys, and the local villagers. Therefore, along with Krishna’s lotus feet one can also see the various impressions left by the cowherd boys, the cows, the deer and the antelopes birds and many other creatures, as well as the villagers. Nearby is the kunda known as Charana-ganga where it is said that Krishna once washed His lotus feet.
