So, what exactly is the story of the death of Lord Krishna? 

Locals have an interesting story to narrate that is considered as the actual plot for the death of Lord Krishna. As per the story, once Lord Krishna was resting in a forest in this region in the same posture how it is displayed in the Bhalka Teertha temple. In the same forest was a hunter who mistook Lord Krishna foot to be a deer’s head and shot his arrow on it and this led to the death of Lord Krishna. 


How can someone who guided the great war or Mahabharat can die just by an arrow attack on his foot?

Well, the answer to this lies in the stories of Mahabharat itself.

Some experts mention that it was Gandhari who cursed Lord Krishna after the death of all her sons that the clan of Lord Krishna will also perish in 36 years. Some other experts also mention some other story related to Guru Durvasa. It is said that it was Guru Durvasa who cursed Krishna that his death will happen by his foot only.
