The place is known for the last time of Lord Krishna. This place still require proper improvements. Although temple is under construction on old temple, some governance is required.

As per the Hindu Puranas lord Krishna was killed by an arrow at this place. A temple is being constructed surrounding the tree where lord Krishna was resting. From here we can visit another temple on the sea shore from where the arrow was aimed. You can also see some lingams partly visible in the sea.

Bhalka thirth is a place where lord Krishna ends his Avatar. A tribal man was given an opportunity of hitting an arrow to the feet of Krishna. Must visit small temple with no steps for all the Krishna believers.
