Close by is the Golokdham Tirth in the Dehotsarg campus, on the banks of the Hiran River. From this spot, Lord Krishna took his final journey to Neejdham on 18th. February, 3102 BC at 2:27:30 hrs (as written in the notice board outside the temple) after being hit by an arrow at Bhalka Tirth by a tribal hunter named Jara. The footprints of Lord Krishna, in marble, are housed in a separate enclosure, next to an ancient peepul tree. The Gita mandir, as well as the Lakshmi Narayan temple, are both here, next to one another. This campus is an equally holy spot for the Hindus. A video is available at VirtualTourist.

Address: Close to the Temple
