Where Krishna died?

Bhalka Thirtha is a place located in Veraval in Saurashtra (western coast of Gujarat) is thought to be the place where Lord Krishna was killed by an arrow. He was killed by a hunter named Jara who mistook his feet to be a prey. It is believed that the great Lord died from a poisonous arrow that created gangrene in the leg. The Lord already knew about the matter and was prepared for the same. On Jara seeking forgiveness, Lord Krishna revealed that Jara was the incarnation of Bali and had came to avenge the death from previous life.
