As we follow the journey of the illustrious avatar of Lord Vishnu, Shri Krishna, who is considered the highest human form that ever existed on earth, we can unravel the story of Krishna’s life.
Born in jail cell amidst life a threatening situation he was transported by night to Gokul, where he spent most of his childhood days. Even there Kans had an inclination that he was the chosen one meant to be his doom, and kept sending dark forces to assassinate him. Krishna became the local hero of his village and of the Braj region as his fame spread. This is sacred region of Braj which is the mirror image of the Braj in Go-Lok (where Krishna resides). This sacred land is dotted with numerous pilgrimage sites and temples where the leelas of Bal Krishna were played out.
Then we move onto the next phase of the story, where Krishna and Balaram not able to hide anymore from Kans are sent to Mathura to meet their fate. After mercilessly killing Kans, Krishna frees his biological parents from the Jail and reinstates the father of Kans (who had also been jailed) as the ruler of Mathura.
From here on also begins the saga of the Mahabharata with a lot many more battles to fight and wars to win. The constant attacks of jarasand and his gang of greedy hoaders eventually forced Krishna to make his capital in Dwarka in the peacful state of present day Gujarat. Vishwakarma – the celestial architect designed and executed the grand master plan of this ancient city. Archaeologist have recently uncovered ancient ruins under water off the coast of Dwarka and a lot of scientific research is currently going on in this area to uncover the ruins.
