Intrigue, heartache, deception, romance, humor, and triumph mark Krishna's epic quest to marry His beautiful queen Rukmini and become King of Dwarka.

This artfully woven performance, which combines music, theater, and dance, was brought to life by a troupe of talented local Gurukulis on the steps of the ISKCON New Dwarka Temple in Los Angeles, California.

This drama was recorded August 1, 2009, in front of 1,100 enthusiastic audience members and was a crowning jewel of KulimeLA 2009.
