The Lord Krishana was born in an amazing place called “Mathura”. The Mathura is a little town near the bank of river Ganga. It falls in the modern state called Uttar Pradesh in country India. The Mathura is now known as the Holi place where the birth of Krishna took place.
Lord Krishna is known by many different names and few of most renown are Gopal, Govinda, Hari, Madan, Mahendra, Manmohan, Manhor, Mayur, Mohan, Murli, Murlidhar, Murlimanohar and Nandgopal. There are total 108 name of Lord Gopala.
Nearly 5,000 years ago, the place where Gopal born was under the rule of king known as Kansa. He was so sunning and greedy; he didn’t even spare his father Ugrasena, later imprisoned him and declared himself to be the King. His father was nice King and he just opposed that.
The sister of king Devika is now getting married to the prince Vasudev of the Yadus. Then they married and after the marriage the divine voice comes from the sky, ‘Evil Kansa, you have wrote your own death by giving your sisters hand to vasudev’. “The Eighth son born to Devika and Vasudeva will kill you”.
After that he decided to kill his sister, but she is the only one who left the whole world he loves. She begged in front of her brother and then asked him don’t kill me and I will hand over my eighth son to you.
But Kansa killed every child of Devika, he killed 7 children and now it was the time to kill the 8th child who was marked as a destroyer to him. Soon in the midnight Lord Gopal was born in the prison. At that time the prison was turned into the blinding and dazzling light.
To save the child Vasudev made plan to visit Gokul kingdom to exchange his son with Yashoda daughter, he immediately took his son and crossed the river Yamuna along with Seshnag helping the krishna to get wet from rain falling o him and his father, Sheshnag was like an umbrella from back moving with him from back.
After reaching Yashoda’s house in Gokul, he placed his son Govinda near Yashoda and took her daughter into his arms and left Gokul to come back to Mathura prison.
In this way birth of Krishna took place, the creator of everyone. He saved everyone from the terrible king Kansa and lot of his evil friends.
