The main temple is Rangamandir. The presiding deity is Govardhanesan also called Balakrishnan. The Goddess is Satyabhama Nachiyar.  The sacred water is Yamuna Nadi and the sanctum sanctorum Govardhana Vimanam. There are more than thousands temples and 35 ghats in this kshetram. The Govindadev temple and Sri Krishnaji temple, Githa mandir are a must to visit.

Sri Ramanuja Sampradaya, Nimbarka  Vaishnava sampradaya, Madhva sampradaya, Vallabha and Chaitanya traditions are being practiced in this Kshetram.
