56 types of Offerings

Every year on the auspicious occasion of Padwa, 56 different types of food items are presented as offering to the Lord in Laxmi-Narayan Mandir of Raviwar Peth. It is believed that Lord Krishna would eat every 3 hours. There are 168 hours in a week. Hence, 56 items for each meal. These include the 6 basic tastes, namely sweetness, saltiness, saviourness, sourness, bitterness and spicy. The Gowardhan Mountain, lifted by Lord Krishna on his little finger, is also worshipped on this day.
