  • is the famous Lord Krishna temple, Bhalka Tirtha, on the site where Krishna is said to have been mistakenly shot in the foot. Nearby is Dehotsarg, where he succumbed to his mortal wound. The temple at Bhalka Tirth is known as Mahaprabhuji's Bethak, and a tulsi tree has been planted in Lord Krishna's memory. At the Dehotsarg Tirth, in the 9th century AD Shri Vallabhacharya gave discourses on Shrimad Bhagvat Gita for seven days, as well as the revered Gita Mandir, which has eighteen marble pillars with a chapter from the Bhagvat Gita inscribed on each one. The temple also contains a beautiful tribhangi idol of Lord Krishna playing his flute.
  • Jai shri Krishna bhagwan ki Jai
  • It is the place where Lord Krishna was hit by an arrow shot by a hunter named Jara, after which he is said to have left the earth for the heavenly abode, an act referred to in the puranas as Shri Krishn Neejdham Prasthan Leela.
  • Lord Krishna was hit by a arrow here for which he left his soul. The arrow was hit by a tribal man named "Jara" from a place where now, the sea bank lies & that place is called "Banganga".
  • Beautiful place where loard Krishna died and government make this place to be more beautiful
