DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

Another reference is to an earlier episod of the death of Kamsa at the hands of Sri Maghada Krishna. Jarasandha, the king of along with Kavalayana, the formidable foes of Yadava community and Particularly of Sri Krishna, besieging Mathura was perpetrating on the Yadavas atrocious crimes without end. Sri Krishna then decided to build an impregnable fort in the midst of sea, contiguous to Sourastra, the safest region then, and take the entire Yadava community there. He commissioned the divine architect Viswakarma to build a city of unparalleled Opulence and inimitable  excellence When the Sea-god, was invoked fur space, he at provided a twelve yojan dry land enjoing deal conditions fur luxurious living. Seeing the city conking up in beauty indescribable and decides to make it, as one far surpassing any city built so far in the Universe, the Asladikpalakas and  Devendra bestowed on it an infinite number of invaluable gifts, like the Parijata tree; Devasabhamantap; divine horses; navanidhis etc., to the comfort of the citizens. Then came down there for permanent settlement the entire Yadava race from Mathura, Brindavan, Gokulam etc. It is here, according to one legend that Sri Mahavishnu killed Sankasur, a demon and transformed his wife Tulasi into a basil plant, the leaves of which are widely used and highly praised for their sacredness and medicinal value.
