In last post we had seen some basic details which almost everybody knows. Now in this post we will have a look at the things which is unknown to most of us.
Earlier Dakor was known as Dunkpur and there is a big lake called Gomti in Dunkpur. So Bodano, who had brought Lord Krishna with him from Dwarka to Dakor had thrown away the idol in the Gomti lake so that soldiers and Brahmins from Dwarka couldn’t find it. Unfortunately he got killed by soldiers and they had also hurt left foot of the Lord Krishna Idol during the search in the Gomti Lake. During this incident whole place was painted in red as the God wounded in the leg little bit. Soldiers got the idol and placed in on the bank of lake. The place where Lord Krishna got hurt is still there middle in the Gomti lake with foot bridge built.
Story later to this once again known to all like Brahmins accepted the agreement in which they have to left the idol in Dakor only and got gold in return. Lord Krishna also told them that dif after 9 months to location near by Dwarka and you will find same idol. But still Brahmins of Dwarka can’t control themselves for whole 9 months and excavated the placed at 6 months and found half built idol, which is not perfect.
Now above story is known to almost all the bhavik bhakts, but 2 things which are almost not known to common people is that;
- Idol in Dwarka has no eyes. Even if they fix new eyes with any medium (glue, min etc), it drops down within a day. (why, because that idol has been excavated 3-4 months earlier than said by Lord Krishna).
- Idol which is in Dakor and which is Original one got signs of hurt in left foot, if any fortunate one got chance to touch the feet of idol in Dakor temple, one can easily feel that it is softer there, just like us – at left footsteps. Earlier, during 1960’s when there were not much restrictions, anyone can touch the feet of idol, so many people has experienced the same including my uncle who is from Dakor only.
We will see in next part what happened to Krishna Idol after Bodano died.
