GURUPAVANAPURA

 
ANTIQUITY

The charming image of Bala Krishna with captivating countenance, wreathed in infectious sweet smile, with four hands adorned with disc, conch, mace and lotus, in majestic standing posture, installed in Srikoil has an awesome history dating back to Dwaparayuga - to be precise, just before Krishna's birth. 

According to the Mahabhagavatha, it is the same idol presented to Brahma by Sri Mahavishnu, who in turn gave it to Kashyapa couple for their inimitable dedication, and who when born again as Devaki and Vasudeva in the Dwaparayuga, came in possession of it by divine blessings. 

They worshipped it in Mathura through thick and thin of their life, and ultimately consecrated in Dwaraka, when Krishna bade and exodus of the Yadavas community for safety. It was worshipped by Krishna himself along with others till his mission on earth came to a close.
