The cradle of Krishna Lila


According to legend, Dhruva, the first son of Uttanapada, born through Suneethi was insulted by his stepmother Surichi, when he was about to sit on the lap of his father. Advised by Narada, he did severe penance, and when Sri Mahavishnu gave darsan, over-whelmed by the Lord's aparupa soundarya, he became mute. The all-compassionate God, then touched his cheek with His conch, the embodiment of the Vedas. Regaining the faculty of speech, Dhruva sang in praise of the lord with such incomparable exuberance that he was given the highest, permanent place among the stars. That event is supposed to have taken place here, and so held sacred.


his is sanctified by Krishna's taking rest after killing Kamsa. On completing His jagadodharana karya, he preferred this- spot for its coolness and serenity. He rested there long. Orthodox Hindus besides taking bath in this, offer pindas to their manes.
