Krishna's Sons became Rulers of Delhi

1. Although Dwarka kingdom was lost, But the help Krishna extended to the Pandava Yudhisthira, paid off.

2. When the rule of Yudhisthira ended, he established the Yadav prince Vajra on the throne of Indraprastha along with the Kuru prince Parikshit, at Hastinapura.

3. Thus the royal lineage of the Yadavas continued through Aniruddha's son, prince Vajra, great grandson of Krishna and grandson of Pradhyumna.

4. Parikshita was the son of Abhimanyu and the grandson of Arjuna and was also grandson to Yudhisthara, son of Draupadi's daughter Sutanu and Asva, Krishna's son by Jambavati.

5. Similarly, Satyaki's daughter's son Bhuti who was grandson of Bhima and founder of Malavas was made king of Saraswat nagar.

6. Krishna and Rukmini's daughter was married to Bali, son of Kritavarma, whose son Andhaka got Mrittivakata. Bali was nephew to Yudhisthara and Duryodhana, married to their sister.

993609_472135546210068_685118745_n1. Lord Krishna had been to the Pandyan land and was present at the sangam at Kavaata puram. Lord Krishna had matrimonial relations with them as He married with Nappinai (UpakEsi) from the Pandyan land.

2. Lord Krishna fought with the Pandyan king and defeated him. And later in Mahabharat War, Pandyan Prince, Sarangadhwaja joined the army headed by Dhristadyumna's son, Kshatradharman, in favor of Pandavas.

3. Before the Destruction of Dwarka, Lord Krishna's descendants Velirs and 18 clans of yadavas departed from dwaraka with sage agasthya.

4. These Yadavas of Lord Krishna's clan went to tamil land mullai. Some other yadav establishments occurred in present day Orissa. Those who went to Orissa founded the Kalinga empire under Indradhumna, Kalinga was devoid of a ruler after kalinga king was killed in Mahabharat War by Dhristdyumna the army chief of Pandavas.

5. Agasthya went to Dwarkapathi and brought back with him 18 kings of the lineage of Krishna who measured the land (as Thrivikrama), 18 families of Velirs and AruvaaLars and had them settled in the lands by clearing the forest tracts.

6. They also called idaiyars and created the velir kingdom in current state of India Tamil Nadu. In Tamil Nadu Abhiras are called as Ayar

7. Important line of chieftains of Tamilnadu during the sangam period with whom Lord Krishna was intimately associated was the Ayars.

8. There were many velir chiefs in the tamil country during sangam period. They had Ay prefix and prominent among them were Ay-andiran and Ay-Vel. They had their capital as Ay-Kudi and ruled the potiya region. The Ay chieftains from the Yadava lineage had their settlements which were known as Ayarpadi.

9. There were twelve to thirteen Vēḷir dynastic families of fame in the Sangam age. Seven kings from seven dynastic clans of the Vēḷir royal house formed the Kadai Ezhu Vallal (The last of the 7 (lines) of Great Patrons), liberal patrons of arts and literature in ancient Tamilakam.

10. The Kongu Vēḷir dynasty ruled Kongu Nadu, while the Vēl Pāri dynasty produced numerous kings ruling Parambu Nadu, the most popular of whom was a close friend of the poet Kapilar. The Irunkōvēl line ruled over Ko Nadu and their most famous ruler, Pulikadimal, was a contemporary of Karikala Chola and Kapilar. The most heralded of the Āviyar line was Vaiyāvik Kōpperum Pēkan, a contemporary of the poet Paranar, and renowned for his generosity. The Malayamān Vēḷir dynasty ruled Nadu Naadu around Tirukoilur, their royal emblem featured a horse and their most famous king was Malaiyamān Thirumudi Kāri. Both he and his son Thaervann Malaiyan assisted the early Cholas and Cheras. The most famous Vēḷir dynasty was the Athiyamān dynasty, and this dynasty's powerful and most famous king was Athiyamān Nedumān Añci. His son Elini ruled Kudiramalai of the ancient Jaffna kingdom and Vanni, a co-ruling contemporary of the famous king Korran. These kings belonged to a prolific Tamil horseman tribe. The ancient Tamil Naka Oviyar tribe of the Vēḷir house, whose nation stretched to the Tamil emporiums of Mantai and Kudiramalai, had the famous king Nalliyakkotan who ruled this region and is paid tribute to in the Ciṟupāṇāṟṟuppaṭai.

11. Each of the Vēḷir dynasties ruled from their own capitals and utilized the seaport of Arikamedu.

12. Vēl Pāri was the title of the line of Tamil Vēlir Kings who ruled Parambu nādu and surrounding regions in ancient Tamilakkam. The most famous among them lived towards the end of the Sangam era and was the patron and friend of poet Kapilar. He is remembered as one of the Kadai ēzhu vallal (literally meaning, the last of the 7 (lines) great patrons). He was the master of the hill country of Parambu nādu and held sway over 300 prosperous villages. The Parambu nadu covers the modern day cities of Gobichettipalayam and parts of Coimbatore and Erode. Pariyur, named after Pari himself is home to the great temples Sri Kondathu Kaliamman Temple, Sri Amarapaneeswarar Temple and Sri Adhi Narayanaswamy Temple.

13. During this period, the three crowned Tamil kings were in the process of expanding their kingdoms and turned the other independent Vēlir Kings into subordinates and assimilated their kingdoms. When they finally lay siege to the heavily fortified country of Parambu, Vēl Pāri would refuse to give in and the war would drag on for years. On one occasion, Kabilar would approach the three crowned kings and describe his patron as an unconquerable warrior and ask them to turn around. After a long drawn out war, Vēl Pāri was be killed by treachery.

14. Another Velir was Irunkōvēl (Purananur-201 by Paranar) who ruled from Koval (modern day Tirukovilur) on the banks of the Pennai, (the present Ponnaiyar River) which presently discharges into the sea at Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu. It is likely that the course of the river has changed to the south over many centuries.

15. Other Velir chiefs of repute include Alumbil Vel, Alandur Vel and Nangur Vel. In Sangam literature the more prevalent word used is Vel, such as in the names Vel Avi and Vel Paari.

16. Lord Krishna fought with 7 seven bulls to marry the princess Nappinnaiin in a swayamvar. This tradition flourished in the Velir Kingdom, and In now Indian State Tamil Nadu, Jallikattu(bull fight) is a Yadava festival, which when started in earlier times, a Yadav boy if he wanted to marry a Yadava girl he had to fight with a bull, and if he wins then only that girl married him. Now all caste people participate in this festival.

Lord Krishna Worship in Indus Valley Civilization, and Satyaki Connection to Indus Valley Civilization

993609_472135546210068_685118745_n1. As we go through Mahabharat, we come to understand that after the submergence of Dwarka, Hastinapur, and Patliputra, Yadavas formed Kingdoms in Delhi, Multan, Orissa, Tamil nadu, Kashmir, etc. One of the Kingdoms formed Under Krishna's Brother Satyaki's Grandson Yugandhar, was formed around the Saraswati River. This kingdom combined with other Yadav Kingdoms, can be traced to be the forefathers of the Indus Valley Civilization.

2. Euan Mackie, an eminent archaeologist, had found a clay tablet of Krishna's Yamalaarjuna episode at Mohenjedaro, a site of the Indus Valley civilisation proving that even in 2200 BC, there was a culture of worshipping Krishna. A steatite tablet excavated by Mackay in Mohanjodaro 1927-31 depicts two persons holding a tree and tree god is extending his hands towards them,Mackay considers that it illustrates the famous episode of krishna,known as Yamalarjuna-lila.

3. The Indus seals feature a number of important and dramatic Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals

4. The Harappan Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals s actually reflect the main Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals s of later Indian art with figures in seated meditation, sacred bulls, pipal leaf designs and even swastikas.

5. The most common Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals by far on the Indus seals, is that of a unicorn, a purely symbolic animal, which largely disappeared from the iconography of later India.

6. The Indus or Harappan unicorn always has a strange device like a cauldron always placed to its front, associating it with some sacrificial ritual. This device has been interpreted as an incense burner, fire altar or Soma filter. The seal is obviously primarily of religious value, not simply an artistic Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals much less a zoological representation.

7. From the underwater ruin of Dwarka (Lord Krishna`s ancient Capital city which was immersed in the sea) archaeologist in 2001 found metal tablet very similar which was found in Indus Valley civilization. This fact further establishes that the people in Indus Valley Civilization were the Yadavas of Dwarka who created their own kingdom under Satyaki's Grandson Yugandhara.
