The birth of Indraprastha

Vyasa paid a brief visit to the Pandavas at Khandavaprastha and blessed them. Krishna visited them and helped them to settle down. With their blessings and encouragement, the Pandavas transformed the desert into a garden. Innumerable trees of different kinds were planted, several lakes were dug and in a very short time, Khandavaprastha became like a paradise. A variety of animals migrated into that area. Brahmins took residence to receive benefits from the Pandavas. Vaisyas set up flourishing trade. A mighty fortification with wide trenches and high walls was built around the town. The new city was named Indraprastha, a city fit for gods. Neighbouring kings became vassals, some willingly and some being forced to. Seeing his cousins well settled, Krishna returned to his capital, Dwaraka.
