MATHURA 
The cradle of Krishna Lila

Failing to destroy his foe through detestable means, like sending demoness disguised as Putana, a comely woman; and demons in dreadful forms like bull, wheel etc., he invited his nephews-Krishna and Balarama to Mathura, preparing ground for their death. But Krishna outwitted him in every one of his evil designs and finally killed him in the open court . itself. Releasing at once his grandfather from prison, he installed him as king of Mathura. People heaved a sigh of relief at long last. Anon he went to prison and pleased his parents with the death news of Kamsa at his hands. All ended well, and so they left for their home. But the joy of the people was short-lived_ for Jarasandha, the brother-in-law of Kamsa, a potential enemy of Yadavas started wreaking vengeance by subjecting them to insurmountable grief. To relieve them from his perpetual onslaughts, Krishna built the city of Dwaraka in the Arabian sea and took them with him for permanent settlement.
