DEHOTSARGA - THE HALLOWED SPOT

Arjuna came to Dwarka, took with him Vajra, the only surviving grandson of Shri Krishna and successor to the throne of Mathura, and left for Hastinapura with the grief-stricken women of the tribe.

When he was in deep meditation, Shri Krishna was hit by the arrow of a hunter,  who mistook him for a deer. The Mahabharata and the Puranas are silent as to the location of the spot where Shri Krishna was struck by the hunter.

Bhalakatirtha, at a short distance from the Somanatha temple, is traditionally the spot of Krishna's death. From here he was  taken to the confluence of the Hiranya, Sarasvati and Kapila-eastern Triveni-at Somanatha, where he was ceremonially cremated.
