Rama Setu and Sri Krishna

Dharma Mandala Sri Vrindavana-Dhama is one of the most significant pilgrim center for Hindus. It consists of twelve forests on the banks of the holy river Yamuna. Amongst these, Kamyavan forest is considered singularly important by the devotees. Here, in this holy forest of Kamyavana, is this beautiful place known as Setubandha Kunda - and connected with the tradition of Sri Rama Setu.
The beautiful hill of Govardhana, located in the Braja mandala is one of the most venerated site of Hindus since the times immemorial. How is it connected to Rama Setu?
It was before the war of Mahabharata had taken place. Arjuna was traveling to different places, performing pilgrimage. In his journeys, he arrived at the famed Rameshwaram and had the darshan of Rama Setu.
