Kashmir - The land of Shakti

A war broke out between Shri Krishna & Jarasandha years before the great Mahabharata war. The then reining Prince of Kashmir Gonanda was an ally of Jarasandha. Eventually, Gonanda lost his life in the battle against Sri Krishna.

Damodara, the son of Gonanda and successor to the throne, was set to avenge his father's death. In pursuit of his vengeance, Damodar marched on with his army to fight Sri Krishna. A mighty battle ensued between them both. But in the end, Damodar was defeated and killed.

Nevertheless, Sri Krishna knowing the importance & sanctity of the Kashmir land, came himself to Kashmir and arranged the coronation ceremony and made Yashovati, the Queen of Kashmir. (pregnant wife of Damodar). This is the real woman empowerment in ancient Bharat.
