Story of Kalindi – Wife of Sri Krishna

Story of Kalindi, wife of Sri Krishna, is found in the 10 Skanda of Srimad Bhagavad Purana. Kalindi was one of the wives of Sri Krishna. One day Sri Krishna and Arjuna went on a hunting excursion to the side of the Yamuna. Here they saw a beautiful girl.

Arjun asked her who she was. The beautiful maiden replied: “I am Kalindi, daughter of Surya, the sun god. I am performing intense austerities to get Vishnu as my husband. I will continue with my Tapas and I shall have no other man as my husband.”

She also informed Arjuna that she resides in the water of Yamuna in the palace built by her father for her. She will reside in it until she meets Krishna.

Krishna immediately informed Krishna about the girl.

Krishna took her to Indraprastha.

Later Krishna took her in his chariot to Dwaraka and duly married her.

Krishna and Kalindi had ten children.
