KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN GUJARAT

Viraval - Krishna Mandir

This kshetra commemmorates the gruesome episode of an imbecile hunter's making the target of the toe of the resting Krishna Bhagawan, under a tree and witnessing his final exit from this world. Krishnavatar began in the Kamsa's prison cell and ended in the then uninhabited forest area, but beautified by the sumptuous growth of green verdure, mirroring the blooming primeval Nature that seduced the Jagadguru to rest and brood over the unexpected annihilation of Yadukula by the curse of Durvasa. It had no name then, but in KaLiyuga it was christened as Viraval.

This is an up-coming industrial town humming with pilgrims always. There is a modestly built, decent temple dedicated to Sri Krishna. The idol painted in multi-colours installed on a high dias feasts the eye and it is perpetuating the sacred spot of Krishna's demise. Hearing the sthalapurana, the visitors offer asrutarpan gaping and gazing at the Navamohanana Krishna. Hence visitation by all.

It lies at 5 km off the famous Somanath shrine in Gujarat state, accessible by four wheelers or train.
