Most of the time Govardhan Puja day falls next day after Diwali Puja and it is celebrated as the day when Lord Krishna defeated God Indra. Sometimes there might be one day gap between Diwali and Govardhan Puja.
In Maharashtra the same day is celebrated as Bali Pratipada or Bali Padva. The day commemorates victory of Vamana, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, over King Bali and subsequent pushing of Bali to Patal Lok (the underworld).
It is believed that due to boon given by Lord Vamana, Asura King Bali visits the Prithvi Lok from the Patala Lok on this day.

Aapala Sampurna Deepotsav Mangalmay Hovo…!
Bansi Ki Dhun Par
Sabke Dukh wo harta hai.

Prem se krishna ka naam japo
Dil ki har iccha poori hogi

Unki mahima, jeewan khushhaal kar degi.
